This report explores some of the key findings of the 2013-14 Benchworks AFA Fraternity/Sorority Assessment survey, including the influence of demographic, academic performance, and other factors on graduates who are most likely to be involved in a fraternity/sorority following graduation.
The majority of fraternity/sorority members (77.4%) indicate plans to be involved with their organization following graduation (25.4% definitely and 52.0% likely). Males are slightly more likely than females to plan involvement and racial/ethnic minority students are more likely than white students to plan continued involvement. Freshmen are more optimistic about their future involvement than upperclassman. Perhaps not surprisingly, more time spent involved in chapter-related activities is related to an increased likelihood of plans to continue involvement following graduation.
Skyfactor (formerly EBI MAP-Works) developed the Benchworks AFA Fraternity/Sorority Assessment, in partnership with the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors (AFA), to assess the effectiveness of institutional resources and the overall educational experience of chapters. A total of 26,340 students nationally were included in this analysis.
