- GreekLifeEdu: This online interactive course educates sisters about behaviors that compromise personal safety (alcohol use, hazing/bullying and sexual assault) and challenges preconceived social norms. Over 5,266 new members completed the course this past year; completion is a requirement for Initiation into Alpha Gamma Delta.
- Novak Institute for Hazing Prevention: Interdisciplinary team of campus professionals, volunteers and students attended the Novak Institute for Hazing Prevention to tackle the public health issue of hazing from a strategic approach focused on prevention rather than response. Campuses could send representatives from student life, athletics, music/band, residential housing, etc. A total of 12 people attended from Northwestern University and High Point University. The premise is that hazing is a campus issue, not just a Greek issue.
- StrengthsQuest Grant: 118 Chapter Presidents attended The Academy for Chapter Presidents and participated in a StrengthsFinder assessment to identify their top five strengths. Facilitators then helped them take their individual strengths and develop personalized strategies to become effective leaders.
