A roundtable discussion on the Hobart College fraternity system, titled “A Proud Tradition, A Promising Future,” will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 24, in the Geneva Room.
Panelists include Charles Eberly and Kevin Kolman of Eastern Illinois University and members of the Hobart College Fraternity Review Task Force. Facilitated by Mike Hanna ’68, director of Hobart athletics, and Robb Flowers, interim director of residential education.
Following an introduction on the history and current state of Hobart fraternities, the panel will lead a discussion about the role of fraternities on campus, fraternity leadership, and how best to develop a fraternity system for the 21st century.
The HWS campus community is invited to attend and participate in the discussion.
In conjunction with the HWS administration and the fraternities, the Fraternity Review Task Force is working to further develop the fraternity system into one that consistently complements the mission of the Colleges, responsibly supports the founding principles of its national organizations, and leads the development of its members academically, socially, and morally. Through a process of observations, recommendations, and outcomes, the Task Force’s charge is to provide the Colleges and the fraternities with a plan of meaningful and practical guidelines that will describe how fraternities in the 21st century can best fit into the Colleges culture.
