3 Phi Mu-Zeta Sigma Sisters Attend 5-Day Leadership Over Summer
Phi Mu National Council is excited to announce a new leadership program taking place in the summer of 2011. Phi Mu will be the first inter/national Greek organization to host an Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI) specific to its organization: Phi Mu UIFI. Developed by the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC), UIFI has been the premier personal and leadership development experience for undergraduate members of sororities and fraternities for over 20 years. UIFI is a life-changing experience that will be shared by undergraduate Phi Mu sisters from across the nation. Members will explore, define and enhance their leadership skills, personal awareness, commitment to their chapters and the Greek community. They also will grow to expect values-based actions from themselves and those they lead. Immediately after the partnership between Phi Mu and the NIC was announced, there was a noticeable buzz within the Greek community. Once again, Phi Mu became a leader in the interfraternal world and raised the bar for undergraduate student leadership training. “Phi Mu prepares members for life after college and is committed to providing exceptional leadership development programming for our members,” said Kris Bridges, National President. Throughout the five day program, collegians will participate in facilitated large-group discussions on topics such as ritual, values-based learning, the Greek community and teamwork. Each member will also have an individual consultation with a facilitator to ensure that she will be able to implement the Phi Mu UIFI concepts when she returns to her chapter. The institute also incorporates a community service project, “Into the Streets,” that demonstrates the impact collegians can have in their local communities. “Into the Streets” is a powerful part of the curriculum as it challenges collegians about both the actions they take and the service they do. After they complete the project, they participate in a facilitated discussion that leads to a greater awareness of the importance of giving back to the local community. The institute will conclude with a graduation ceremony, allowing each student the chance to reflect on her time at the institute and what she learned. Each collegiate chapter will send two representatives, the chapter president and an emerging leader selected by her chapter based on her potential leadership abilities and her desire to hold an officer position in the future. Participants will take what they learn back to their schools with the initiative to foster change that will propel their chapters and Greek communities forward. Three separate five-day sessions of Phi Mu UIFI will take place at the Phi Mu Delta Alpha Chapter house at Indiana University in Bloomington, Ind. Each Phi Mu UIFI session will include 80 collegians and 14 facilitators. Collegians will be divided into small groups led by two facilitators. The facilitation teams will be selected through a competitive process and will be comprised of Phi Mu volunteers, fraternity/sorority alumni/ae who work as Greek advisors and leading experts in the interfraternal world. After returning home, participants will have access to a support network of facilitators and attendees. They will be able to share additional ideas and gather feedback from the relationships built while at UIFI. (read more)
