The Fraternity & Sorority Coalition Project is a collaborative venture of key interfraternal partners, including AFA, NALFO, NIC, NPC, and NPHC. Its purpose is to objectively assess and communicate the overall health of a fraternity/sorority community. This is achieved through:
- the collection of institutional and community data prior to an on-campus visit;
- a thorough site visit conducted by a trained team of three to six Coalition volunteers, tailored to each campus;
- and, a final report highlighting campus-specific strengths, limitations, and recommendations, based on pre-visit data, meetings with key stakeholders, and team observations.
The Project focuses on five core areas, representing shared partner standards:
- Developing positive interpersonal relationships
- Advancing current leadership development
- Strengthening social IQ, citizenship, and service learning
- Advancing academic interest and assessing graduation and retention of members
- Determining the effectiveness of campus interface with, and support of, the fraternity/sorority community
A Coalition assessment can serve as a complement to institutional or community strategic planning, provide guidance during or after a crisis, aid new staff in transition to the community, and facilitate dialogue about current community strengths and challenges.
Each assessment takes into consideration the unique needs and circumstances of the host campus. Likewise, the cost and length of each assessment varies with the size of the fraternity/sorority community. Visits can be conducted at any time during the calendar year; weekends are discouraged.
