SUNY Potsdam Greek Life Task Force Holds Community Forum

04.29.13

The SUNY Potsdam Greek Life Task Force will host the second of two open forums on Monday, May 6 at 6 p.m. in the Knowles Conference Center Multi-Purpose Room. Local residents are invited to attend this open forum, which is focused on gathering information about Greek Life’s impact on the greater Potsdam community.

The open forums are an attempt to gain insights and perspectives regarding Greek organizations at SUNY Potsdam. The second forum on May 6 will be aimed primarily at gathering comments from the Potsdam community members, and will also be open to students, faculty and staff.

An alumni open forum solely designed to gain perspective from graduates is being planned as well.

The Greek Life Task Force was established in March to study what it means to be a fraternity or sorority member at SUNY Potsdam. The task force will explore all components of Greek Life at SUNY Potsdam, starting with tradition, leadership development, community service and contributions to the College. The task force will be asked to present both preliminary and final reports to the SUNY Potsdam President’s Council, including recommendations for the future of Greek Life at the College.

More information regarding the Greek Life Task Force can be found on the SUNY Potsdam website, at www.potsdam.edu/studentlife/greeklife/taskforce.

Individuals wishing to provide information to the task force about related issues and concerns are encouraged to send them to greektaskforce@potsdam.edu.
