Phi Mu Fraternity and Phi Mu Foundation have a shared vision to develop confident, vibrant women. Investing in leadership and educational programs such as the Phi Mu Officer Academy 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.
In February, more than 800 executive committee officers from every collegiate chapter traveled to Orlando, Florida, for the 2019 Phi Mu Officer Academy. Officers spent the weekend immersed in role-specific leadership training facilitated by Phi Mu staff and experienced volunteer officers, and spent time sharing ideas and best practices with other chapter leaders.
The opening session of the academy was sponsored in part by the Betty Wilkinson Lecture Series Fund (Betty and her husband pictured above.) and featured alumnae Sarah Stewart Holland, Delta Theta, and Beth Silvers, Delta Theta, of the popular podcast Pantsuit Politics. Sarah and Beth shared lessons learned from their time in Phi Mu at Transylvania University and how leaders can handle conflict while maintaining respect for each other and our sisterhood!
