Greek Officers Leadership Development (GOLD)

GOLD 2020

Greek Officers Leadership Development 2021 will be held  January 7 - 9, 2021


The Greek Officers Leadership Development (GOLD) program is a collaborative partnership between Fraternity & Sorority Life and Leadership Education And Development. The two departments come together to put on this program every January for newly elected and current chapter leaders across all four governing councils. The program spans multiple days and includes leadership development, hard and soft skills training, discussions surrounding various topics impacting the fraternal movement (including hazing, risk management, growth and expansion, and the ‘value’ of the fraternity/sorority experience), and relationship building among students as well as with staff members.
