Greek Leadership Class

Course Description:

The goal of this course is to provide undergraduate up-and-coming student leaders who possess
membership in a social, Greek-letter organization with the skills, knowledge, and information to
allow them to reach their potential as leaders and officers in their chapters and councils.
This course is also offered simultaneously as an opportunity for graduate students who seek to
work in higher education to be exposed to current trends in running and managing fraternity and
sorority communities. Academic requirements for graduate students taking this course will be
more significant than for students who are undergraduates.

This Course will focus on narrowing the gap between knowing and doing as it relates to leader-
ship in a fraternity or sorority. The curriculum is designed for up-and-coming leaders who are
prepared to enter roles in leadership in the fraternity and sorority community regardless of
council affiliation (e.g. MGC, IFC, PHC, or NPHC).


Dr. Shawn M. Dowiak, Assistant Dean of Students, Director of Fraternity & Sorority Life
