Stewardship is a commitment to taking care of yourself and each other. Quality stewardship involves looking out for the welfare of others and creating safe environments conducive to learning, creativity, and personal growth and development. College is a lot of fun, but can be very stressful at times. Having brothers or sisters that you can turn to in times of need is invaluable. Chapters also provide programs on topics such as time management, stress management, and health/wellness to help members lead healthy, balanced lives. As a freshman, having the support network that a fraternity or sorority provides can help you make a successful transition to college life, and help you have a positive overall college experience.
Stewardship in Action
- Greek students founded Greeks Advocating the Mature Management of Alcohol (GAMMA) in 2007 and have since co-sponsored several successful events with other campus departments and student organizations, including an annual model risk management party, keynote speakers, and Emporia State University Safe Spring Break.
- More than 30 Greek students have been certified as peer educators.
- Emporia State Greeks plan campaigns and events such as National Hazing Prevention Week and Alcohol Awareness Week to promote good stewardship.
