The CCFAI Collaborative addresses the unique dynamics, challenges, and issues that professionals face in addressing diversity, equity, and inclusion within the fraternal industry. The CCFAI Collaborative foci is to provide comprehensive education for National Panhellenic Council and North America Inter-fraternity Conference member groups to dismantle oppressive systems and cultivate more inclusive spaces and leaders. The second area is tackling the unique dynamics, challenges and issues that professionals face in advising and supporting culturally-based fraternal organizations (CBFOs).
As advisors, consultants, and student affairs professionals we bring 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.
Our alliance is valuable because it is grounded in research and blended with a practitioner’s perspective that serves as a unified platform to provide the latest research, tested methods, and best practices. Seeking to fill the gap, our goal is to see diverse, equitable, and inclusive fraternal communities on campus across North America.
