Hart Institute Social Event Planning for Community Leaders
Who should attend? Those interested in addressing risk within their fraternity & sorority community.
As fraternity and sorority leaders, you face complex problems in the area of risk management including policy knowledge and implementation, campus culture, behaviors and actions of other organizations on your campus and – let’s face it – behaviors of some of your members.
Maybe it’s time for the leaders in our communities to get on the same page; have hard conversations, become educated and embrace that YOU are the change agents of the fraternity and sorority community. As a result of the Hart Institute edition for community leaders, participants will engage in a community conversation around problems in the area of risk management. They will achieve a better understanding around the framework of stages of change, harm reduction, and brain development. Those who attend will develop a common understanding of the FIPG Risk Management Policy around alcohol and drugs. Ultimately, participants will learn how to create safe events in compliance with the policy through event planning and prevention resources.
Our problems are complex; however, solutions to these problems are really quite simple. It’s time to give community leaders the framework and tools needed to create safer environments.
Please note, it is strongly suggested that any student who attends should also have a fraternity & sorority life professional from their campus attend. There is a $30 fee to take part in the institute.

Out & Greek Institute
Who should attend? LGBT & Ally Fraternity & Sorority Leaders
Campus Pride is the leading national educational organization for LGBT and ally college students and campus groups. The organization initiated its Lambda 10 Project in 1996 to create visibility and support of LGBT members in fraternities and sororities. Lambda 10 works actively to develop resources and educational materials to educate on sexual orientation and gender identity/expression as it pertains to the fraternity/sorority experience.
Since 2013, AFLV and Campus Pride have embarked on a strategic partnership to present the Out & Greek Institute in conjunction with AFLV West. To be a part of this institute, learn more and register here. Registration is $150.
