The Intake Equation


▪Community Building
▪Fraternity & Sorority Life

The Intake Equation helps members of culturally-based fraternities and sororities overcome challenges associated with intake and hazing.

Although all fraternities and sororities have unique values and identities based on a historical foundation, ultimately it’s up to the current members to maintain the integrity of the organization. The Intake Equation tackles core challenges that can compromise what their organizations stand for, including hazing, intake, values alignment and various issues that truly matter to specific organizations.

By dissecting the membership intake process and examining the concept of branding, students will learn how to shape their membership in a manner consistent with the mission and values of their organization and will develop a plan to build a legacy of success. This Interactive Workshop challenges student leaders into action and gives them the confidence and urgency necessary to make significant changes within their organizations and community.

The Intake Equation was created and is facilitated by members of NPHC, NAPA, NALFO and NMGC organizations, so students will connect with their facilitators as brothers and sisters who share their values and concerns about the future of their organizations. This Interactive Workshop is the perfect way to shake up your community.
