Greek Task Force
The Greek Task Force formed in January of 2012 to evaluate and assess the Fraternity and Sorority Life Program at the University of New Haven. The Task Force navigates through the CAS Standards, which is a powerful used to enhance the fraternal experience. CAS addresses issues challenging the Greek movement, a framework of how to apply new ideas, and an intentional approach to managing fraternal organizations. Under the supervision of Director of Student Activities, Greg Overend, the committee is led by graduate assistant, Sue Zarnowski with a team comprised of faculty/staff members, Greeks, and non-Greek student leaders.
Throughout the semester, Presidents of fraternities and sororities meet with advisors to formally discuss current issues within the community, ways to enhance the Greek Life Program, and new initiatives. The roundtable helps Presidents to communicate effectively, problem solve, build programs around their values, and create partnerships.
The Greek Ambassadors Program is designed to use current fraternity and sorority students as representatives to promote the core values of social fraternities and sororities at the University of New Haven; personal growth, community engagement, brotherhood/sisterhood, scholarship and lifelong involvement. The purpose of the Greek Ambassadors Program is to create positive awareness of the University of New Haven Greek Community:
- To communicate the benefits and contributions of Greek Life to those inside and outside the Greek community
- To increase interest in joining any organization at UNH
- To impact the outlook of the faculty, staff, undergraduate, and graduate students in regards to Greek Life
- To share the Greek experience with those who are interested, those who are unsure and those who never considered joining a fraternity or sorority
- To provide factual information to counterbalance stereotypes, falsities and misinformation that has been shared about the UNH Greek Community
- To further connect Greek organizations to the University and community
