Creating Experiential Opportunities for Leadership Education and Development
The new CEO LEAD structure is focused on the development of the individual, the group, and the community and the ultimate goal of positive change as described in the Social Change Model.
- Individual – Consciousness of Self, Congruence, and Commitment
- Group – Collaboration, Common Purpose, and Controversy with Civility
- Community - Citizenship
The fraternity and sorority community is dedicated to the above goals and encourages all members of the Drexel Greek community to work toward becoming CEO LEAD certified.
Attend six workshops for a CEO LEAD certificate. Attend all six in one area and get Leadership Certificate in that area or attend 6 in any combination of the three and get a ‘Holistic Leadership’ Certificate. Concentrations will require 3 additional workshops in specific areas and you can get as many as you wish.
Host your own CEO LEAD certified program or have your program added to the CEO LEAD schedule by filling out this form.
Fraternity and Sorority Life Concentration:
Attend any 3 of the following in addition to the six for your leadership certificate:
- Fraternity and Sorority History - Since 1776 fraternities have been an integral and essential part of American higher education. Beginning as college literary societies common in higher education, Greek-letter fraternities and sororities have grown and changed over the years opening doors for a diverse membership and creating one of the largest communities around the world. In this program, students will learn the basic history and founding of Greek-letter organizations from literary societies through today’s culturally-based and special interest organizations.
- Greek Values - Fraternities and sororities claim to be values based organizations, but what does that really mean? How well do you understand your chapter values and rituals and why they are important? When is the last time you had a meaningful discussion with your fellow Greek members about the core values of our organizations? Come to this session and get ready to take fraternity/sorority membership to the next level.
- Recruitment 101 - You made a great decision – you made the choice to join a fraternity or sorority! Chances are you decided to join your fraternity or sorority because someone persuaded you to look past the stereotypes and learn what it really means to be Greek. Each of us has a unique story about how we were invited to become a member of the Greek community. This workshop focuses on laying the foundation so that you can help to grow your organization one member at a time, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
- Greek Futures Explored - What does post-college life have in store for Drexel fraternity & sorority students? Are you surprised to learn that fraternity and sorority alumni continue to engage in community service after college at a far greater rate than their non-Greek peers? How will your affiliation benefit you after your undergraduate days? Your future and the future of fraternities and sororities are explored here.
- Greek Values II: Living the Ritual - Ritual is the thing that sets fraternities and sororities apart from other organizations, yet we rarely talk about it, what it means, and how we are living it, leaning on the basis of secrecy. This program will discuss Ritual, values, and the importance of congruence between organization ideals/values and individual actions. Additionally, you will discuss how to incorporate your Ritual into the day to day functions of your chapter and your life.
- Values Based Recruitment - Recruitment is the life-blood of our fraternal organizations. With these organizations uniquely based on values and principles that set them apart, it is imperative to include those values as a guiding light when recruiting new life-long members. Effectively communicating the values of the organization allows members to determine a potential member’s genuine interest in the organization and allow the potential member to feel secure in his/her lifelong commitment to uphold those values.
- Other Specialized Programs, such as Out on Fraternity/Sorority Row, Hazing Prevention Education, and others designated on the CEO LEAD schedule.
