Soter & Soteria: Examining Greek Guardianship on Wed 3/24

When we break down this “Risk Manager title”, it falsely limits the officer to think their main duty is to manage an ongoing rising chaos. This year the Citizenship Council wanted to help break down the RM title and shift the chapter’s culture through teaching foundations of care. We wanted to create a series that will allow chapters’ executive board to participate in a facilitated discussion where they will be challenged as leaders. Not only will they learn how to deliver the policies in a meaningful way and learn skills to lead the conversations, but also reflect on their own roles and what experiences they want their members to have. Click HERE to register!

Campus Funding Support
Available year-round to all Case Western Reserve University student organizations or individuals regardless of affiliation, with the exception that IFC/PHC Greek Organizations should apply through chapter support funding instead. The purpose of these funds is to foster community, promote individual/identity-related development, and/or further positive culture changes in the CWRU community. We especially encourage applications in the areas of active bystander/upstander intervention, consent, anti-racism, and physical/mental well-being. We encourage all interested organizations to apply, and are happy to assist you in your application and in ensuring sustainable, ethical budgeting practices. The guidelines the board uses in its holistic assessment of funding applications can be found here. Previous examples of successful funding requests include: Loaves of Love Challa Bake, Leadership Conferences, TASA Night Market, Social Justice Teach-In,  Security Funding, and more! Please reach out to the IFC/PHC VP of Finance, Bridget Powers Beggs (bep50@case.edu), with any questions.
