External Relations Resources

The fraternity and sorority community is committed to sharing experiences that ensure that friendship and fraternal bonds are filled with care, concern, and challenge to elevate the status quo. To support in their efforts to build coalitions and connections, the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life has compiled a list of resources relevant to external relations for chapter use.


It is important for each chapter to have a positive image with its various publics, including (inter)national organization, alumni, parents, and community members. Chapters should be proactive in disseminating accurate and positive information about the fraternity/sorority experience.

Connections to CLIMB:

  • Positive external relations allow a chapter to effectively build coalitions and make authentic connections with a host of constituents that can positively impact the organization’s operations and members.

For more information about any of the resources below, contact Natalie Padron in the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life, or by email at natalie.padron@colostate.edu.

Fraternities and sororities have a responsibility to  contribute positively to the narrative surrounding the fraternal movement.  To assist chapters as they strive to highlight meaningful examples of the value of their fraternal experiences, a template public relations and marketing plan has been created and is provided below.
