Remember, too, The Friendship Fund, which assists Thetas experiencing extreme financial hardship due to serious or terminal illness, job loss, natural disaster, and other devastating occurrences.
Interested students should show an interest in mental health and promoting community on campus. More information and application instructions can be found on the JED Foundation website. The deadline to apply is Friday, October 2, 2015.
This week (September 21-25), college campuses across the nation are observing National Hazing Prevention Week (NHPW). Kappa Alpha Theta recognizes the importance of providing our members with the tools necessary to combat hazing, and encourages members to host and participate in events that bring awareness to hazing prevention efforts.
Here are some ways you can show your anti-hazing support and educate yourself and others about hazing:
- Download the NHPW Resource Guide.
- Sign the Anti-Hazing Pledge form.
- Read the Fraternity's blogs on the topic.
Please let us know how you are recognizing NHPW! Send an email with high-resolution photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure to add #NHPW15 to any social media posts; don't forget to tag Theta, too!
The faculty members were selected from more than 110 nominations by college chapters across the United States and Canada. Chapters were asked to select one nominee and base their selection on the professor's passion for inspiring students and actions that connect to Theta aspirations: intellectual curiosity, leadership potential, commitment to service, and personal excellence. Candidates were not limited by gender, fraternity or sorority affiliation (or non-affiliation), disciplinary expertise, or number of Thetas taught.
