Achievement Expectations Program
2016 Fall Academic Semester-End Report

In August of 2013, our Achievement Expectations Program (AE) was launched.  The primary goal of this program is to evaluate the performance of all our chapters, and provide a community-wide picture of what is occurring in Greek Life.  The program has seven categories (Administrative, Academic, Community Service & Philanthropy, Chapter Development, Leadership, Community Building & Campus Engagement, and Risk Management). In each category we expect all organizations to meet specific targets by completing and submitting documents regarding their chapter’s activities, and participating in community programming.  Within the seven categories, there are ten subcategories on which each organization is reviewed. 

Key points and a baseline summary of the findings for Fall 2016 are as follows:

  • We believe chapters are doing many of the things outlined within the Achievement Expectations, but are simply not reporting the activities, thus creating gaps or incomplete categories – specifically in Community Service and Community Building & Engagement.

  • Academically, our chapters are very successful.
  • The three categories of highest completed participation are Administrative, Academics and Risk Management.

  • Participation varied greatly by council affiliation.

  • Although overall participation has seemingly increased this semester compared to last year, there is still need to improve overall participation.

  • We need assistance from advisors, consultants and inter/national officers to increase participation.

Summary

  • Two chapters met expectations in all seven categories compared to no chapters last year.

  • Three chapters met or exceeded expectations in nine of the ten subcategories

  • Only seven chapters met expectations in Community Service.

    60 of 64 chapters met the expectation of a chapter GPA of 2.75 or better with 48 chapters exceeding expectations with a chapter GPA of 3.20 or better.

This year the evaluation period was split into two semesters instead of covering a whole academic year in one report.  Each chapter has been asked to document their participation by the end of each semester.  This will allow for more effective tracking of trends half-way through the year, will reward and recognize positive outcomes more frequently, and will provide a framework for discussion when meeting with chapter leaders.
