On Saturday August 25-26, Delta Kappa Epsilon is hosting a leadership conference at Lafayette College to kickoff the 2012-2013 academic year for the Rho chapter. For the past several months DKE alumni have been teaching student leaders about Strategic Planning. At this conference DKE alumni will assist student leaders in guiding the entire chapter through the process. You can view the materials to be used at the conference as the DKE Strategic Planning Presentation as well as the agenda for 2012-08-25 DKE Leadership Conference – Strategic Planning.
Alumni will teach students how to decompose elements such as thematic goals from Strategic Planning into annual goals and specific actions. The topics we plan to cover at the conference are Recruitment, Academic Standards, Pledge Education, and Public Relations. The students should leave the conference with the skills necessary to repeat the exercise for other topics such as civic engagement.
This conference is one example of students in fraternities like DKE integrating their intellectual, social, and personal growth by putting learning into practice outside of the classroom.
