Dr. Ron Binder: How can Fraternities and Sororities reduce their risk this fall?
Today we have a special treat for our listeners. We have with us Dr. Ron Binder, Associate Dean of Residential Experience at Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa! Ron speaks nationally on risk management and alcohol and substance abuse and has been cited in Newsweek, NBC Nightly News, National Public Radio’s Talk of the Nation and Court TV. Ron is a seasoned professional with extensive experience in Greek affairs, speaking around the country at Sigma Phi Epsilon leadership programs and traveling to Greece with 17 students from the national fraternity to study Greek philosophy. If you really want to understand Greek affairs, you call Ron.
We find out why Ron chose the University of Toledo for his undergraduate experience, what made the brothers of Sigma Phi Epsilon so special to him, what it was like being a house dad at Lambda Chi Alpha and Phi Gamma Delta, more about his dissertation at the University of Georgia called “The Environmental Influences on Academic Achievement in Fraternities”, how the community at Coe College is different from his other experiences, what it was like to travel to Greece with 17 students from the national fraternity to study Greek philosophy, how can we better support our fraternity/sorority advisors given their limited resources and smaller FSL offices, how Fraternities and Sororities reduce their risk this fall, if it is sustainable to have liability insurance premiums continue to ramp up in the fraternal world, and his favorite restaurant in Cedar Rapids. Enjoy!
