Apply to work in the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life:

Are you looking to work on campus next year? Work with us! The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life is currently seeking student interns for the 2021-2022 Academic Year. The OFSL works closely with interns and provides projects and specific job responsibilities as they relate to each intern’s personal goals and aspirations. We will hire several intern roles including a community service & philanthropy intern, and an Elevation intern. The OFSL is looking for individuals who are responsible, mature, dependable, and professional.

These positions are work-study positions and the OFSL will assist applicants in completing the required work-study application (specifically for merit-based work study for those that may not qualify for need-based work study). We encourage you to apply even if you do not already have a work-study award; merit and need-based work study are available for the 2021-2022 academic year.

FSL Classes:

A core principle for all fraternities and sororities is scholarship. We promote lifelong learning and critical thinking through the membership experience. To help with this, the OFSL offers classes each semester aimed at educating members and encouraging them on the road to fulfilling their potential as leaders in the fraternity and sorority community and beyond. Check out the class description below!

WS 397
Fall 2021
3 Credits (Face to Face; In-Person Course)
Tuesday 1-2:50 p.m. & Thursday 1-1:50 p.m.

Inclusive Leadership for Fraternity & Sorority Members is designed to provide students an opportunity to explore and discuss the complexity of human differences in today’s society through readings, discussion and activities, and reflection. This class is also designed as a leadership development course and will help fraternity and sorority members examine leadership in the context of inclusion, diversity, and social justice. Emphasis is placed on understanding one’s personal identity, as well as understanding how to lead with a sense of responsibility toward and with different individuals. Strategies for allyship and interdependently leading within a global community are also examined.

This class is only open to fraternity and sorority members, so students have the opportunity to build relationships with fraternity and sorority members from chapters across campus all while reflecting on what makes the fraternity and sorority experience unique. The course meets on Tuesdays between 1-2:50 p.m. and Thursdays 1-1:50 p.m.
