Advocacy

Leading Fraternal Advocacy An effective advocacy campaign is not conducted in a silo, nor is it a single project. The NIC continuously collaborates with partners, educates stakeholders about the benefits of fraternity membership, and advocates for the fraternal movement. Everything that NIC engages in is centered around advocacy. It is important that NIC member fraternities support the NIC advocacy efforts through their continued promotion of those behaviors which are reflective of the best tradition of excellence of their organizations and immediately and effectively address situations that occur which are contrary to those traditions. This will increase NIC advocacy effectiveness. The critical audiences for our advocacy are: Higher education The primary environments in which fraternities operate are colleges and universities. The 800+ institutions across North America are a general audience with the Chief Student Affairs Officer (Vice President for Student Affairs and/or Dean of Students) and the fraternity/sorority professional as the specific stakeholders. The NIC will continue to utilize a network of relationships, inter/national conferences and workshops, and various forms of media to ensure our message continues to reach critical partners. Media The NIC serves as an industry spokesperson for national, regional, and local outlets and monitors media coverage for stories related to fraternity. The media is an important constituent that impacts and influences fraternal advocacy efforts. The NIC will closely monitor member fraternity news and may notify organizations when alerts are received. This is done...

Research

Research National Gallup-Purdue Index Reveals Improved Well-Being Among U.S. College Graduates Who Joined Fraternities and Sororities Results for the Gallup-Purdue Index are based on online surveys conducted Feb. 4-March 7, 2014, with a random sample of 29,560 respondents with a bachelor’s degree or higher, aged 18 and older, with Internet access, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. This included 5,137 fraternity and sorority members. The North-American Interfraternity Conference and National Panhellenic Conference partnered with Gallup for this first-of-its-kind study. When it comes to being engaged at work and experiencing high well-being after graduation, a new Gallup-Purdue University Index study of U.S. college graduates found that graduates who are members of fraternities or sororities are more likely to thrive in all five elements of well-being during their post-graduate years than those graduates who did not join. The study revealed that respondents identifying themselves as members of fraternities and sororities—16 percent of respondents indicated that they were a member of a national fraternity or sorority while attending college—scored better in overall well-being, workplace engagement, collegiate support, experiential learning and alumni attachment. Overall Well-Being Graduates who participated in fraternities or sororities are slightly more likely to be thriving in all five critical elements of well-being—purpose, social, financial, physical and community—than are graduates who did not participate in fraternities or sororities. Workplace Engagement National results show 43% of college graduates...
