Over the past year, the Education and Development Committee has successfully educated six New Member classes. Over 67 New Members have gone through the New Member Education program, and have been initiated as Brothers of the PA Delta Iota Chapter. These men will go on to shape our organization and our legacy here at Drexel University.
Broken down into a five week program, the Path to Brotherhood is a New Member Education program that teaches the values and history of our fraternity and allows each New Member to learn at his own pace. The program is organized into natural 18-22 minute chunks, leaving each New Member free to divide each week’s two hours of total content into the number and length of sessions that most easily fits his schedule. During regularly scheduled meetings your New Member Educator will have the opportunity to maximize face to face time through discussion on the topics learned that week. Rather than spending time recreating lessons, quizzes, or meeting agendas, the New Member Educator will be free to focus instead on integrating New Members into their university’s Greek Life system while helping them develop relationships with the unique Brothers, traditions, and customs of our Chapter.
Furthermore, the Education and Development Committee has worked to create and implement programs to help our Brothers excel academically and continue their development as men and as leaders. Through the work of our Academic subcommittee and through programs like the Well-Developed Man Program, we continue to push our Brothers to reach their greatest potentials.
