Panhellenic Council Wins at Fraternal Leadership and Values Regional ConferencePosted May. 6, 2013
Kent State University’s Center for Student Involvement (CSI) announces that the Panhellenic Council of Kent State won two awards at the Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values (AFLV) Central Conference this past year. This conference is one of the largest events that AFLV sponsors. The programming that occurs at this event includes position-specific information for governing Greek councils, chapters, advisors and graduate students.
Another component of the conference is applying for awards that are presented during the closing banquet on the last night of the conference. Councils across the Central Division can submit an awards and assessment application to receive recognition within their designated division, and an assessment report that shows how their achievement compares to other institutions in their division. Kent State is in Division II with other institutions that have a range of five to seven chapters on their campus. The prestigious awards that the council won were for programming excellence in the concentrations of Academic Achievement and Philanthropy and Community Service.
Judges were impressed with the Panhellenic Council’s involvement in communitywide events. These events include Song Fest, where all the chapters from Kent State raised $25,000 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Judges also highlighted the council’s high-grade expectation for member organizations and plan-of-action requirements for continual improvement as the main reasons Kent State was given an Academic Achievement award.
The award was presented to the Panhellenic Council at the closing banquet of the AFLV Central Conference on Saturday, Feb. 9. Accepting the award on behalf of the council was Brianna Foraker, current president of the Panhellenic Council.
