In 2015-16, we dedicated $199,750 to Leadership & Educational Programming.
Under the guidance of our joint strategic plan, Phi Mu Fraternity and Phi Mu Foundation have a shared vision to develop confident, vibrant women. Investing in leadership and educational programming like the Chapter Consultant Program and Phi Mu University challenges our members to think big; to be confident in their abilities to solve tough problems and lead others to find solutions in a complex environment. These programs encourage women to push doubts and uncertainties aside and to lead with confidence each and every day.
“As a former Chapter Consultant myself, I’ve seen first-hand the tremendous impact the program has on our membership, and the benefits it offers not only to our chapters and members, but also to the women who serve as consultants. The investment we make in these women to become trained leaders is something they’ll carry with them throughout their time on the road, into their careers, and for the rest of their lives.”

One of the longest-running grants that Phi Mu Foundation has made to Phi Mu Fraternity is the financial support of the Chapter Consultant program. Each year, leading Phi Mu women make their way across the country, providing guidance, support, problem-solving skills and inspiration to our chapters and our members. The funds we grant to the Fraternity support the leadership training of the consultant team and access to resources they need to ensure our chapters are running efficiently and effectively. The Chapter Consultant Program has seen tremendous growth alongside the expansion of our Fraternity, and is an integral part of our commitment to cultivate leadership and educational opportunities for our membership.
Phi Mu University
As an organization built upon its strong literary roots, Phi Mu gives high priority to scholarship and academics. To help provide our members with access to cutting-edge resources to support their education, the Fraternity worked to develop Phi Mu University. Phi Mu University is an online video tutorial program that offers our collegiate and alumnae members lessons on some of the most popular academic subjects. More than 10,000 women have utilized Phi Mu University since its inception, and 10 new subjects will be added to Phi Mu University this fall.
In an effort to continually provide our members with values-based resources, the Fraternity and the Foundation have partnered with EverFi to bring the online course, GreekLifeEdu, to all of our collegiate chapters. GreekLifeEdu focuses on educating our new members on issues such as wellness, alcohol awareness, sexual assault and hazing. By offering this program, we’re providing women with the tools they need to make more educated decisions in this next chapter of their lives.
