Greek Leadership Training

Greek New Member training is presented by the Greek Councils and SLICE. The Greek Retreat and finance and risk trainings are offered by SLICE staff.

New Member Training

In addition to each chapter's specific education or intake process, the three councils also offer overarching educational opportunities for new members. All Greek New Member Education, a program co-facilitated by SLICE staff and council executive board officers, provides new members the opportunity to meet and forge connections with members of the Greek community outside of their respective chapters. This is a time to learn about the Greek community, expectations of a good member and leadership development.

Greek Retreat

The annual Greek Retreat is an onboarding opportunity facilitated by the Greek team and professional staff for executive officers of the councils and chapter presidents. The retreat consists of team building activities, small group discussions and large group leadership development. The retreat helps students develop meaningful connections with others in order to inspire and mobilize the community.

Finance Officer Training

Greek chapters are unique in how their organizations operate financially, in addition to the complexity and importance of the role of Greek Financial Officers. The Greek Finance Officer Training is a great resource for any chapter leader who is closely involved in the financial operations of their chapter. This training serves as a supplemental training to SLICE’s Authorized Signer training and further explores the usage of on-campus accounts managed by SLICE. In addition, participants will be educated about topics including the role of a treasurer, use of CMU Housing accounts, use of off-campus accounts, methods of revenue collection, compliance to requirements from CMU and the Internal Revenue Service, budgeting and record-keeping, and planning for leadership transitions. 

Risk Management Training

Risk Management Training, largely planned for chapter presidents, risk managers and social chairs, encourages students to think critically about organizational and personal risk. This training includes student resources, best practices and emergency response.
