Dr. Colleen Coffey Melchiorre: How do we improve retention in our fraternity or sorority?
Welcome to episode # 92 of Fraternity Foodie! Today we have on the show a long time friend, Dr. Colleen Coffey Melchiorre, who does business development for our good friends at PhiredUp. I asked Colleen to talk to us about why fraternity men and sorority women leave their organizations, as retention will be a key issue for our chapters in light of the pandemic.
We find out why Colleen chose Belmont University for her undergraduate experience, what was special about the women of Alpha Sigma Tau, what makes PhiredUp so successful, why fraternity members or sorority members might leave their organization, the key to retaining/engaging your members, why vulnerability is important, what is social excellence, how students can fix processes that are broken in their organizations, and Colleen’s favorite restaurant in Nashville.
