For almost 40 years, the Council for the Advancement of Standards (CAS) has provided a general structure for good practice in enacting work in higher education. AFA has had a long-standing role in making that happen and has been a member of the Consortium for just over 35 of those years. Fraternity and Sorority Advising Programs, the Standards for good practice in implementing a campus-based Office of Fraternity/Sorority Life, can be a useful tool for practitioners to review as they create departmental infrastructure and launch efforts to assess effectiveness and delivery of services.
This session will focus significantly on how one might implement self-assessment and program review using the FSAP Standards. This presentation will focus on helping the participant to:
- Explain the functions and utility of the CAS Standards;
- Determine approaches for implementation in their FSAP/OFSL; and
- Identify approaches to infusing assessment and research into their ongoing practice in order to best use these Standards.
