Alumni Opportunities

Giving undergraduate members the best possible experience starts with having volunteer advisors who are trained in and dedicated to the mission and values of Phi Kappa Psi, and who are genuinely invested in positively shaping their lives. With a goal of engaging all advisors, reducing risk and providing information on important policies in higher education, the Fraternity is constructing an Advisor Certification program. Using a mix of online and in-person training, advisors will learn about Title IX, Ethics and Codes of Conduct, hazing, and other “hot button” topics.

Although much depends on advisor involvement, more must be done to set advisors up for success. To that end, an Advisor Certification program is slated for rollout in the Fall 2018 Semester. Advisors will be provided training on Phi Kappa Psi-specific items, and external partners will be leveraged to train advisors on best practices for fraternity advising and information on critical policies and procedures. Expanding the program to a tiered certification system or train the trainer model will also be considered. By August 15, 2019, membership recruitment advisors, supervisory committee members and chapter advisors will be required to complete the certification.

Along with Advisor Certification, the Fraternity is also adopting a regional support structure that has been successful with other peer organizations. During the first semester of the program, one or two advisors from each district or geographic location will offer support to chapter advisors within their designated region.

By working together to educate more advisors, Phi Kappa Psi will be poised to meet the challenges of an ever-changing higher education world.
