Pillar 3: Membership Education
Every member that calls themselves an Acacian should have a consistent “Acacia Membership Experience” — to the extent possible. We want to explore ways to insure our member education occurs in a consistent manner.
We want to optimize our opportunities to prepare our members to succeed as students and for life after college, including around mental health.
The better we can help prepare and equip our Chapter Officers to lead, the better they will lead our chapters, the better the fraternity experience for our members.
Joining a fraternity is not an experience with a finite beginning and end point - it’s a journey. We want to ensure all segments of our membership benefit from a continuous experience of learning and growth.
