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.

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.

  • Eligibility: Seasoned, experienced facilitators who have been a UIFI Lead or Small Group Facilitator before.
  • Application: Lead Facilitators are selected the fall prior to the next UIFI sessions. Lead Facilitator openings will be available again in fall 2018.
  • Training: Lead Facilitators are trained during a pre-conference gathering at the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors (AFA) Annual Meeting.
Small Group Facilitators

In each UIFI session, approximately 80 fraternity/sorority students gather from across North America. The students are assigned to smaller groups called “chapters.” Small Group Facilitators are paired and assigned a chapter of 10-12 students with whom they work throughout the program. The primary role of the Small Group Facilitator is, with his/her partner, to conduct the chapter meetings that occur throughout the UIFI session. Facilitators are also asked to assist with topical discussions and other components of the general sessions.

  • Eligibility: Campus professionals and graduate students as well as fraternity/sorority staff, consultants and volunteers are eligible and encouraged to apply. Only undergraduate students are not permitted to serve as a facilitator at UIFI. Individuals who work with non-profit organizations or other businesses that serve college students are also eligible. There is no requisite age or experience level. Facilitators also do not have to be affiliated with a fraternity or sorority.
  • Application: The Small Group Facilitator application is now closed. Applicants selected to be Small Group Facilitators will be notified of their selection and session dates in March 2018.  
  • Training: Small Group Facilitators receive curriculum prior to departing for their session and are trained on-site by Lead Facilitators.
