Advisor Resources

 

Thank you for joining us at #AFLVCentral! We are looking forward to a great conference filled with inclusive programming and collaboration between campus administrators, national organizations, and students to accelerate progress in fraternity/sorority communities.

 

Please see below for all the resources you'll need as an advisor.

 

Updates for 2019

Here are details for #AFLVCentral 2019:

  • This year, we will be utilizing our Whova app to allow for students to pre-register for breakout sessions and Game Changers. Your students will be able to sign up in advance for programs they are the most interested in beginning January 31.
    • Please note, it is the responsibility of the student to go to the sessions they signed up for and to make alternative plans if the session registration is full. 
    • By signing up for a session, you are not guaranteed a spot. We are utilizing the Whova app for planning purposes. If we see a session is filling up quickly before we get on-site, we may be able to adjust the schedule to put the session in a larger room.
    • While we are unable to provide conference-wide wifi, to minimize the amount of data used, attendees can enjoy complimentary wifi in their sleeping rooms. We also have wifi available for professionals in the Professionals' Lounge and for students in the Study Lounge. 
    • If you prefer to use Whova on your desktop or laptop computer, a Whova webpage will also be made available.
  • For safety issues and to expedite the hotel check-in process, please let the JW Marriott know what students will be staying on the property. A form will come soon via the JW Marriott and other contracted hotels.

    • Who Should Attend? All fraternity/sorority professionals & graduate students

      What impact does deferred recruitment have on the student experience? Does getting rid of pledging make a difference in an organization's hazing culture? What is the ideal chapter size? What are the biggest predictors of member retention? Is GPA a reliable predictor of chapter culture?

       

      In an era of high-profile hazing deaths, rampant sexual misconduct allegations, and campus fraternity/sorority system shutdowns, college and university leaders are looking for answers. Often, they are forced to fall back on practices that seem promising (i.e. deferred recruitment, shortened new member periods, etc.), but there is actually no empirical evidence to suggest whether or not those practices make a difference. As both campus leaders and fraternal organizations grapple with a "new normal," we still lack empirical evidence related to fundamental questions about the fraternal experience. By having answers to the above questions, our profession can move beyond hyperbole about "best practices" and begin moving toward practices that are supported by empirical data based on four years of research, with nearly 200,000 students representing nearly 400 campuses nationwide completing our surveys.
