Becoming a GEM Mentor
Being a GEM Mentor allows juniors and seniors to positively engage the newest leaders in the Greek community. Mentors are an integral part of the Greek Emerging Leaders program. Being a mentor allows you to develop essential leadership skills, while being a role model to future Lehigh leaders. Mentors shape the program by building relationships with the mentees, developing content for the overall program, and facilitating that content by engaging mentees in small and large group conversations about important issues in leadership and the Greek community. Applications are available here.

President’s Leadership Academy
The President’s Leadership Academy is a retreat that occurs in August with all Greek chapter presidents and council executive board members. The academy’s purpose is to encourage Greek presidents to network, to build their leadership skills to prepare for their role, and to discuss the vision of the greater Greek community.
Accreditation Liaisons are faculty and staff members who meet with chapters once a month to assist in the accreditation process and encourage chapter-wide reflection opportunities for individual and organizational success. Liaisons will review chapter development questions, assist students in making connections with the accreditation metrics, and most importantly serve as a facilitator of reflection for chapter processes and programs.
