The prezi for the Event and Calendar workshop has been posted on the Fraternity & Sorority Affairs website for those who were unable to attend the training on Wednesday night. The prezi includes screen shots of how to get to each part of the event creation and promotion part. If you have more questions, contact Emily Britt at email@example.com. You can also request a training for your members using the form linked here.
This workshop will focus on how to create events, use card swipes to take attendance, and how to integrate your calendar and the Fraternity & Sorority Affairs calendar. Participants are encouraged to bring their laptop so that they can follow along with this interactive training. Any student is welcome, but this training would be especially helpful for chapter presidents, secretaries, social chairs, philanthropy chairs, and new member educators.
Growth Guiders has provided the final summary report from the Common Goals Initiative to the Fraternity and Sorority Affairs staff. This report has been shared via the Common Goals Initiative OrgSync portal, as well as the Chapter President portal. A summary of the report was given at the Open Forum on Friday, October 3rd that highlighted primary themes in the information. Those themes are outlined in the prezi linked below for anyone who would like to see them.
Fraternity and Sorority Affairs will be working with the governing councils, chapter leadership, interested members, and the newly formed Chapter Advisory Council to address these themes and continue to make improvements to our community. Be on the lookout for more information and ways to provide feedback in these efforts.
The Fraternity & Sorority Affairs Office seeks interns to help manage office social media accounts and create innovative content to share with the community. Responsibilities of the interns include:
Complete approximately 10 hours of work per week - including both in office and at events and functions
Curate content on all social media platforms including Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, blog posts, and OrgSync
Maintain a professional and appropriate interactions with office staff, council and chapter leadership, prospective students, alumni, parents, and the university community
Be knowledgeable about all fraternities and sororities present at the University of Kentucky, as well as issues and activities going on in the community
Attend regular staff meetings with members of the Fraternity and Sorority Affairs staff and fellow interns
Interns do not have to be members of a fraternity or sorority. Preference will be given to students who have experience - either academic, internship, or other role - working to manage social media accounts for professional organizations or offices.
Interns are unpaid, but can use this work towards class credit or professional portfolio creation. This position is semester to semester, with a preference for students who are interested in completing at least two semesters as an intern. Positions begin in January, with training and preliminary meetings in November.
Applications due Wednesday, October 8 by 11:59pm. Interviews will be held the week of October 13th for qualified candidates.
Fraternity and Sorority Affairs will be hosting a series of regularly scheduled open forums in an effort to provide more opportunities for members of the fraternity and sorority community to ask questions and hear updates from the staff. These forums will be targeted around particular issues that the staff would like to solicit feedback on, but the floor will be open for questions outside of those pre-selected topics.
The first forum will be held on Friday, October 3 at 2pm in Student Center room 231. This forum will be focused on the summary report from Growth Guiders on the Common Goals Initiative.
