ELC Program

ELCs 2017-2018
The Kappa Alpha Theta Educational Leadership Consultant (ELC) program was launched in 1959, and quickly became one of the most coveted positions in the Fraternity. ELCs are recent college graduates who serve in a visible role for Theta. Their term generally spans from July to April.
They are role models for Kappa Alpha Theta's college chapter members and alumnae volunteers. As an official representative of the Fraternity, ELCs must have thorough knowledge of Fraternity laws and procedures. They must enthusiastically support Theta's ideals and foster the Fraternity's goals and objectives. ELCs demonstrate a rich tradition of service to Kappa Alpha Theta.

This program is supported by Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation  .


Do You Have What It Takes to Be an ELC?

If you believe you can contribute to this rich tradition of women who have served as ELCs and meet the following requirements, we encourage you to apply:
  • Are a college graduate by June of the year you are hired
  • Are a Theta in good standing
  • Have effective communication and presentation skills
  • Are able to relate to a variety of age groups
  • Are adaptable
  • Are in good health and able to travel extensively
  • Believe in the Fraternity's ideals and principles

Seeing the "big picture" of Kappa Alpha Theta and serving the Fraternity are benefits of the consultant program, but many times the lifelong friendships that are formed among consultants is the most rewarding outcome of their year on the road.

If you have questions regarding the ELC Program or if you would like to request additional information, please contact the assistant director of chapter services at 800-526-1870.


What Our ELCs Say About the Program

"I love being an ELC because I'm reminded of the power of this organization every day when I meet and work with women from all across the U.S. and Canada who embody the values that helped to guide me through my college experience. Developing relationships with people I want to be like has been a hallmark of my Theta experience since the beginning, and being an ELC has expanded my Theta world so much! I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to mentor and learn from such incredible women." Casey Crownhart, Zeta Mu/MIT

"Serving as an ELC has allowed me to establish skills I did not think I would ever learn. This job has significantly improved my confidence level and my ability to adapt quickly. Traveling across all regions of the U.S. has instilled in me a new passion of cultural experiences and diversity. Ultimately, the ELC program has given me the opportunity to set myself apart from other candidates in professional careers going forward." Paige Eidenschink, Gamma Mu/North Dakota State

"The ELC program has been both a rewarding and fulfilling experience thus far! I have had the opportunity to assist collegians in recognizing their fullest leadership potential and empower them to find confidence and create positive change, all while being able to develop myself professionally. The ELC program has been an invaluable opportunity that has allowed me to give back to the Fraternity that helped me grow immensely. I assisted in establishing the 147th chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta at Sacred Heart University. The most rewarding part about this was knowing that I helped in bringing the opportunity to be a Theta for a lifetime to so many collegians and helped shape their lives. I have loved showing these charter class members the values of Theta that I hold so close to my heart and assisting them in building their own legacy in Theta and at Sacred Heart." Abby Stasior, Epsilon Lambda/Dickinson
