Leadership Programming

Be Leaders.

Leadership development is one of the many benefits of membership in a fraternity/sorority. Our students have many opportunities to serve in leadership roles and engage in leadership development, education, and training through their chapter, council, inter/national organization, and the Office of Greek Life. Whether they have a title or not, we want all our chapter members to act as leaders.

Greek Emerging Leaders Program

The Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is designed for members of the Vanderbilt University Greek community who are interested in developing themselves as future leaders. ELP will explore common challenges faced by members of the Greek community, while developing skills necessary to become leaders in value-based organizations. Students will work together while exploring organizational leadership theory to reach several intended goals. It is the intent first and foremost that participants gain a better understanding of who they are and how they can best serve as a leader in their own chapter or the Greek community at-large.

Graduate Greek Fellows Program

Vanderbilt University graduate students, particularly those working towards degrees in Higher Education Administration, and professional staff members seeking opportunities for involvement with the Office of Greek Life are welcome to apply for our Greek Fellows program, including those without Greek affiliation or previous experiences with Greek Organizations. Greek Fellows have the opportunity to volunteer and be engaged with the Office of Greek life in ways that include, but are not limited to, Lunch & Learns, Greek Awards judging review, participating in new member education programs, assist with Greek Life leadership development programs, and assisting with Panhellenic recruitment. Benefits of participating in the Greek Fellows program include gaining awareness of emergent themes in the fraternal world, developing familiarity with Vanderbilt Greek Life, enhancing ability to facilitate student sessions, building campus relationships, and other networking opportunities.
