Reflection: Academic Achievement
Fraternities and sororities should strive to assist members in their academic efforts. All chapters should actively work to support members in their academic efforts, promote lifelong learning, and create opportunities for growth and improvement related to academic excellence.
So your plan has been created, revised (maybe), and now you are coming out of your officer term. Here are some questions you can ask yourself about the past year:
- What kind of impact did you have within your chapter?
- How will that impact be sustained?
- What suggestions do you have for future officers?
- What are you most proud of?
- What do you wish you could have done?
Use this time to critically reflect over the last year. Critically reflecting will help to provide for a smoother transition and greater success for the person moving into this position. [15 points]
Documentation includes a written reflection on the success of your action plan, not to exceed three pages. This reflection should detail the ways in which your chapter has achieved the outcomes detailed in this priority area (see section below). [Due:]
- In your reflection in this area the chapter should address any policy violation that occurred throughout the calendar year and specifically if they chose to reach out to the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life and/or the inter/national organization prior to being found responsible to ask for help in areas in which chapter activities or procedures may be in conflict with policies.
Chapter does not need to submit documentation for the following. These criteria statements will be verified by the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life (but please be sure the chapter’s achievement of these outcomes is addressed in the reflection).
- Chapter term GPA meets or exceeds the respective all-women’s or all-men’s GPA each semester. [10 points each semester]
- Chapter New Member Class term GPA meets or exceeds the all-university GPA each semester. [5 points each semester]
