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.
