2015-2016 Achievement Expectations 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.  The program has seven areas (Administrative, Academic, Community Service & Philanthropy, Chapter Development, Leadership, Community Building & Campus Engagement, and Risk Management). In each category we expect chapters to meet specific targets by completing and submitting documents regarding their chapter’s activities, and participating in community programming.  Overall there are ten categories on which each organization is reviewed.

After 37 years of service to the University of Michigan Greek Community, Director of Greek Life Mary Beth Seiler will retire on June 30th.  Mary Beth was hired in 1979 by Persephone’s Consilium, a group of Panhellenic alumnae who supported Greek Life’s viability throughout the late 60s and early 70s when Greek Life struggled to survive nationally.  She describes the start of her position as “a very exciting time, full of so much potential.” As the community continued to grow, so did the need for Mary Beth’s expertise.
