New Study Shows Benefits of Joining a Fraternity vs. Not Being Affiliated

The Case for Fraternity Rights

Between 2007 and 2009, 5,697 male college students participated in an independent research study concerning their growth, learning, and development. Those sampled represent fraternity members, as well as unaffiliated men. The result, and the differences, are startling.

Independent research complied by the University Learning Outcomes Assessment (UniLOA) has recently presented valuable data concerning the impact of fraternity membership on student growth and performance. These findings reveal telling results surrounding several previously questioned areas of the student experience.

Common threads gleaned from this extensive research have helped NIC better address many of the ongoing points of contention between its members and those who cast dispersions and create misinformation surrounding the importance and impact of fraternity life to both students and communities at large.
