Panhellenic Council of Kent State Wins Three Awards at AFLV ConferencePosted Mar. 24, 2014
The Center for Student Involvement is proud to announce that the Panhellenic Council of Kent State University won three awards at the Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values (AFLV) Central Conference that was recently held in Indianapolis. This conference is one of the largest events that the AFLV sponsors. The programming that occurs at this event includes position-specific information for governing Greek councils, chapters, advisors and graduate students.
Another component of the conference is applying for awards that are presented during the closing banquet on the last night of the conference. Councils across the central division can submit an awards and assessment application to receive recognition within their designated division, and an assessment report that shows how their achievement compares to other institutions in their division. Kent State is in Division II with other institutions that have a range of five to seven chapters on their campus. The prestigious awards that the council won were for programming excellence in the concentrations of council management, leadership and educational development, and membership recruitment.
Judges were impressed with the Panhellenic Council’s overall growth in 2014, increasing Panhellenic membership from just under 750 students to more than 1,000 members. Judges also highlighted the council’s high expectation for member organizations and plan of action requirements for continual improvement as the main reasons Kent State was given a council management award.
The awards were presented to the Panhellenic Council at the closing banquet of the AFLV Central Conference on Feb. 8. Kristy Diesner, president of the Panhellenic Council, accepted the awards on behalf of the council.
