Strategic Plan

Fraternity and Sorority Life Assessment and Strategic Planning

During the 2009-2010 academic year, the Office of Student Leadership and Engagement worked with Tom Jelke of t.jelke solutions to evaluate and assess UT's Greek community. UT was seeking a consultant to a) assess the fraternity and sorority community; b) provide recommendations as to how to help that community become more high performing; and c) identify ways in which the University could have a stronger relationship with the fraternities and sororities on campus. The evaluation focused on assessing the community, providing recommendations for improvement and identifying ways to enhance relationships between the University and its Greek community. This process consisted of interviews with Greek and non-Greek UT students, administrators, alumni, chapter advisors and other members of the University community. In addition, pertinent documents and data about the Greek community were analyzed. After completing this evaluation, the Fraternity and Sorority Advisory Committee presented a draft of their plan to key stakeholders to solicit their feedback. As a result of this work, the community adopted the 2010-2015 Fraternity and Sorority Strategic Plan.

Throughout the 2014-2015 academic year, a new strategic plan is being created by again incorporating student, faculty, administration and advisor input on areas of growth for the community to focus on in the upcoming years. The new strategic plan will take effect in June 2015 and run through the 2019-2020 academic year.

Comments, questions and/or suggestions for the new strategic plan can be sent to Brian Hoffman, coordinator of Fraternity and Sorority Life, at bhoffman@ut.edu or (813) 257-3480.
