Facilitators often find the UIFI experience to be as enriching as it is to the undergraduate participants. The learning environment, forward-thinking nature of the curriculum, and heart and passion of the undergraduate participants make it more than worth the time you donate. UIFI is an opportunity to break away from the day-to-day business of the office and be among colleagues and students who share a passion for fraternities/sororities.
You will find professional development through interactions with colleagues from across the country, growth of facilitation skills and structured conversations about the nature of our work.
Types of Facilitators
Lead Facilitators: Lead Facilitators play a critical part in making UIFI a reality. They are responsible for on-site session management, training and leading a group of up to 16 small-group facilitators. They guide the program’s central themes by delivering five days of general session content. For complete details about what is expected of a Lead Facilitator, see the Lead Facilitator Agreement.
Small-group Facilitators: In each UIFI session, approximately 75 fraternity/sorority students gather from throughout North America. This group of delegates is then divided into smaller groups called “chapters.” Small-group facilitators are paired and assigned a chapter of 10-12 students who they work with throughout the program. The primary role of the facilitator is, with his/her partner, to conduct the chapter meetings that occur throughout UIFI. Facilitators are also asked to assist with topical discussions and other components of the general sessions. For complete details about what is expected of small-group facilitators, see the Facilitators Expectations Guide.
