FASTforWARD is an initiative that has been developed to specifically address wellness issues among students in the Greek community at EMU. Fraternities and Sororities Together for Wellness and Responsible Decision-making, also known as FASTforWARD, is a new strategy including a series of programs designed to address concerns involving alcohol awareness and confrontation, mental health and sexual assault in the social environment. This campaign will also utilize a variety of avenues for generating awareness of these issues within the community in addition to promoting healthy decision making.  Any chapter that has 80% of their members attend the 4 core programs in a calendar year will be recognized as a Five Star FASTforWARD Chapter.

*Policies Affecting You (Core Program) - Peer Educator Team

This presentation will make participants aware of the many policies that affect members of social Greek letter organizations at EMU, including the Fraternity & Sorority Life Social Policy and the Student Conduct Code Special Provisions for Fraternity & Sorority Life members.  Students will learn about these policies in a fun, game-show format, and also have the chance to ask any questions about current policy changes and other local/state laws. 

Academic Wellness - Peer Educator Team

This program is as perfect for the chapter looking to make an academic turnaround as it is for the chapter looking to maintain the high standards they have already achieved. This one hour session will give individual members tools to improve their academic ability by helping to connect them with, and educate them on the use of the academic support resources on our campus.

Financial Wellness - Available for Chapters to Facilitate

For many students, college is a sizable financial investment. It's unfortunate that young adults are making so many large financial decisions at a time in their lives when they have little experience doing so! This program seeks to educate students on some of the "unknown unknowns" and rudimentary money management around credit cards and student loans. Perhaps paying dues on time might not be so hard after this session!

Combating Apathy Within Your Chapter - Available for Chapters to Facilitate

The idea that every member of an organization will be equally committed and engaged is a fantasy. But how do you minimize apathy within your chapter and get the most participation? This program will spark conversations amongst your chapter members about what motivates them and will get to the bottom of why they aren't participating in activities.
