The four councils associated with the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, Interfraternity Council (IFC), Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), National Pan Hellenic Council (NPHC), and Panhellenic Association (PHA) have installed the Programming Board to be responsible for planning, promoting, and producing community events. Individuals serving on the Programming Board will be instrumental in both event coordination and community development among CSU’s fraternities and sororities.
Design and Philosophy
The FSL Programming Board, in collaboration with the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, creates experiences and initiatives that foster the development of a collaborative community. This programming board will utilize elements of event programming and community development to create a stronger sense of unity within fraternity and sorority life at Colorado State University.
The Programming Board will consist of seven Director positions and three Council Liaison positions. These 10 members of the community are expected to reflect the vision, mission, and non-negotiable values of the CLIMB expressed by the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life.
The role of the Director is to have first-hand involvement in the design and implementation of large-scale events for fraternities and sororities. Involvement includes and is not limited to meetings, event planning and coordinating, post-event assessment, event marketing, and community building.
The role of the Council Liaison is to represent the interests and input of the operating governing councils. Council Liaisons will work with Directors to shape the vision of community engagement at events as well as in council spaces.
Events that the Programming Board will engage in currently include Homecoming and FS Fest (formerly Greek Week). Upon determination of the Programming Board, the governing councils, and OFSL, this may include more programs and endeavors. Council-specific programs can be assisted by Programming Board efforts, however the intention of the Programming Board is to provide leadership at an all-community level.
