Our Mission

The mission of AFA to enhance its members’ abilities to foster impactful fraternity/sorority experiences.

Our vision

AFA provides exceptional experiences, a vibrant community, and essential resources for the success of fraternity/sorority advisors. The vision of AFA is to be the catalytic force in aligning the fraternity/sorority experience with the changing dynamics and enduring principles of higher education. AFA is commitment to professional development, academic and applied research that examines the entire spectrum of the fraternity/sorority experience and the advising profession, and collaborations within and between the higher education and interfraternal communities.

History

In 1974, members from the North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC), Fraternal Executives Association (FEA), and the Fraternity Advisors Association saw the need for collaboration between the different groups.  This lead to a joint meeting in 1976 where individuals across the country gathered in Williamsburg, VA to commemorate the bi-centennial of the fraternity movement. In that meeting, these individuals crated the concept of AFA.
