Most college students know the “right thing to do” to advance fraternity. Yet, they lack courage and motivation to carry out those actions. Students need like-minded students to band together to make change.
IMPACT can bring your fraternity and sorority community together to create these deep relationships quickly. Participants will collectively identify and confront the issues in the community.
IMPACT is a campus-based leadership institute designed to foster improved relationships among campus leaders through an intensive, interactive 2.5-day program. It is expected that change will be the result of an IMPACT weekend. Participants determine what that change is through their participation.
The IMPACT curriculum emphasizes:
IMPACT is designed to build on itself in a manner that culminates in an agenda for meaningful community elevation. Through increased self-awareness, community awareness, visioning, and skill development, participants will be able to recognize the current realities of their fraternity/sorority community and begin to develop effective strategies for positive change.
The general structure of an IMPACT includes experiential activities, interactive presentations, and both large- and small-group sessions that flow together into a unified, community building experience.
All sessions offer hands-on experimental activities and ample discussion time to address individual concerns. The sessions are led by two experienced presenters (identified by the NIC) and several small-group facilitators (identified by the host campus).
The program can be used to meet a variety of needs, such as a retreat for chapter and council leadership or an emerging leaders institute. The NIC will work with you to customize the program to focus on your campus’ unique issues.
NIC staff will work with you to host IMPACT for your campus community. Contact Alexis to learn more about IMPACT and begin planning your program!
If you can answer “yes” to any of these questions, IMPACT is a program that could positively influence your fraternity and sorority community.
