Members in our collegiate chapters were born in 2000! These current Phi Mu collegians face a learning environment that is startlingly different than most alumnae experienced. Online classes are now the norm and the traditional classroom experience looks very different.
With information and knowledge having always been at their fingertips (“Google” has become a verb), today’s students do not know the ‘joy’ of having to search through an encyclopedia. They may not even know what the Dewey Decimal System is!
Phi Mu leaders continue to discuss, evaluate and be creative about meeting the needs of our collegiate members and excelling in developing curriculum that engages, educates and develops the next generation of Phi Mu women. Phi Mu has always been an organization of pioneers: Mary, Mary and Martha were in their teens when they founded the Philomathean Society! Staff and volunteers in the Leadership and Curriculum Department, women with experience in higher education, training, facilitating and consulting, continually develop new programs and reinvigorate existing programs.
said, the Fraternity could use additional help to better serve the needs of our
collegians! In the changing world of higher education and a continually adapting
learning environment, it is imperative that we gather together to ensure that
the Phi Mu experience we are providing is helping members more than we ever
This is where YOU come into the picture!
Are you an educator for secondary or higher education? Help us better understand trends in curriculum design to engage Phi Mu learners.
Are you a hiring manager, recruiter or HR leader who struggles through interviews with underprepared recent college graduates? Help us better understand the gaps in their personal development that translate to their professional competencies.
Phi Mu has set a goal of cultivating culturally competent global citizenship among our members and we need to ensure that our mission of developing women is supported through outstanding programming that we offer to collegians.
The Fraternity will host a series of Focus Groups in February. If you have experience in education or human resources, or have relevant experience that would benefit the Leadership and Curriculum Development Department Team as they evaluate the needs of collegiate members and work to meet those needs, please join a Focus Group!
The Focus Groups will be held via Zoom. If you have any questions, please email Ellen Bower, Delta Beta, National Leadership & Curriculum Development Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. To sign up to participate, please click this link: http://bit.ly/LCDFocusGroupForm
