The CCFAI Collaborative
The Cross Cultural Fraternal Advisors Institute (CCFAI) Collaborative addresses the unique dynamics, challenges and issues that professionals face in advising and supporting culturally-based fraternal organizations (CBFOs).
With over forty years of combined experience, three companies joined forces to utilize legal, cultural, and operational experiences. As advisors, consultants and student affairs professionals each entity brings a unique set of professional and personal experiences. Recognizing gaps in the field, we determined that a collaborative effort was needed to provide educational resources to ensure CBFOs are well served on their campuses, as organizational entities.
