Who Should Attend?
The Hart Institute for Social Event Planning is intended to "train the trainer." Thus, the target audience is truly professionals who can go back to their campuses and organizations and train their fraternity/sorority leaders. This includes:
• Campus-based fraternity/sorority professionals in conjunction with staff that work with the FSL population (conduct, Title IX, campus security,
• Students in council leadership positions (must have advisors attend)
• Inter/national fraternity/sorority headquarters staff members or volunteers that work in the area of risk management education
• Anyone interested in learning more about the industry standard risk management guidelines, how to facilitate and teach more effectively, and
resources for creating safer events
After the Institute
Following the Institute, participants will receive a portfolio of resources to use on their campuses or within their inter/national organizations. Additionally, it is our goal that participants will be equipped to train volunteers, fraternity/sorority leaders, and chapters on social event planning in a fun and educational manner.
