Our Priorities: Elevating Innovation


AFA believes that our best ideas are ahead of us, not behind us. AFA prioritizes investments in new ideas, structures, processes, and ways of knowing that transform the ways in which we think about fraternities and sororities.

Opportunities for campaign support include:

  • Investing in “Communities of Practice” designed to build enclaves of expertise, to test ideas, and to develop best and promising practices (i.e. prevention, assessment and evaluation, conduct and accountability);
  • Creating and funding of ‘Innovation Grants’ designed to fund creative approaches to solving problems plaguing the fraternity/sorority experience;
  • Support for funding designed to pull in and engage minds external to higher education and sorority/fraternity life;

Our Desired Impact:

  • That the opportunities for innovation are not diminished by a scarcity of resources.
  • That the elevation and celebration of ‘controlled experimentation’ becomes a core expectation of our professional community.
  • That building and leveraging communities of expertise within our industry better serves colleges and universities, fraternities and sororities, and students at large.
