2015-2016 Achievement Expectations Report

In August of 2013, our Achievement Expectations Program (AE) was launched.  The primary goal of this program is to evaluate the performance of all our chapters, and provide a community-wide picture of what is occurring.  The program has seven areas (Administrative, Academic, Community Service & Philanthropy, Chapter Development, Leadership, Community Building & Campus Engagement, and Risk Management). In each category we expect chapters to meet specific targets by completing and submitting documents regarding their chapter’s activities, and participating in community programming.  Overall there are ten categories on which each organization is reviewed.
