2016 Greek Leader Retreat
Every year, students from the University of Missouri attend a retreat to learn, grow, and develop as leaders for the Greek community and for our campus. The Office of Greek Life leads this retreat for all chapter presidents, council executive boards, members, and staff. This year, the retreat was held at Camp Mihaska in Bourbon, Missouri.
The retreat is an excellent time for the new Panhellenic Association (PHA), Interfraternity Council (IFC), and National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inc. (NPHC) executive boards to get to know one another and begin to set goals for the upcoming year and the future of Greek Life at Mizzou. In a time where our university is in a state of change, having this positive education and goal setting will help further unity and inclusion in the University of Missouri’s Greek Community. During the retreat students completed programming by facilitators from areas around the university, including MUPD and offices outside of student life. The student leaders discussed topics such as education, diversity, knowledge, leadership, relationships, upholding values, and unity. These are just some of the goals that the executive boards would like to work on and carry out in the near future.
Each executive position and their counterparts will work together throughout the next year to make these goals a reality. According to those who attended the 2016 Greek Leaders Retreat, students left feeling hopeful and positive for the year to come.
Through leadership, inclusivity, and education Greek student leaders will continue to make a conscious effort to improve and continue the productivity of Greek Life at the University of Missouri.
