We will discuss and possibly formulate and develop policies, opinions, guidelines, and plans for enhancing the strengths of the Rockhurst University Greek community - eliminating/overcoming its challenges and improving the community’s impact on the campus and in the larger community. The course will address issues including community building, safety, public relations, recruitment, retention and respect for individual members, while reinforcing the common goals of each chapter. This course is constructed in a manner that will benefit students in their current role in Greek organizations, and will also benefit students for roles in a variety of organizations over the rest of their lifetime.
