AdvanceU is a virtual based classroom with educational programs specifically designed to enhance the alignment of the fraternity/sorority experience with the changing dynamics of higher education. AdvanceU programs provide AFA members the opportunity to engage on a wide range of topics with content experts who develop curriculum with a specific set of learning outcomes geared at achieving higher levels of professional competence in our members.
The goal of AdvanceU is to provide seminars that range from new skill development to application of new concepts. Participants are exposed to new best practices in higher education and then encouraged to apply those new concepts to our work with fraternities and sororities. Every AdvanceU session provides members the opportunity to continually develop as a professional, is grounded in the Core Competencies for Excellence in the Profession, and continues to AdvanceU.

Upcoming programBuilding a Culture of Assessment that Supports the Fraternity & Sorority Experience
May 29, 2019 | 2:00-3:30 p.m. EDT
Are you interested in using data to better inform your work supporting the fraternity/sorority experience? Do you have data you’re ready to use and draw upon, but you're not quite sure where to start? In this workshop, participants will get an overview on the basics of assessment and evaluation and explore ways to create a culture of assessment in your department. We will help you think about the unlikely places where you may find useful data. Participants will also consider the ways that strategic planning, learning outcomes, and student development inform data collection and assessment. Through AdvanceU, you will have a chance to consider the story you want to tell and develop a plan for action.
Program attendees will grow their knowledge in the Core Competencies of Driving Results, Student Learning, and Program Administration.
