Will Foran: What makes the NIC educational programs so successful?
Welcome to episode # 100 of Fraternity Foodie! We are celebrating this milestone of our 100th episode with a long time friend and a leader in the Fraternal world, Will Foran, Senior Vice President of Campus Operations for the North American Interfraternity Conference. Will leads NIC Campus operations and education initiatives, designed to increase alumni, undergraduate, and IFC effectiveness. He establishes relationships with campus professionals, as well as NIC stakeholders to coordinate a national education and advocacy strategy.
We find out why Will chose IUP for his undergraduate and Masters Degree, what makes Phi Mu Delta at IUP special, some of the differences between the campuses that he’s worked on (Carnegie Mellon, Mount Union, Western Illinois), what makes NIC educational programming so successful, the challenges of advocacy with so many different organizations in the NIC, the progress that has been made on the 3 Presidential Commissions (alcohol/hazing/sexual assault), recent research showing that fraternity and sorority members benefit from significantly more engagement, steps the NIC taken to address racism/intolerance/hate, what Will wants to accomplish as National President for Phi Mu Delta, and moments that stand out when Will was really proud of his students.
