2015 CAMPUS GROWTH SURVEY OPEN - CAMPUS PROFESSIONALS ASKED TO PARTICIPATE

 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Dr. Colleen Coffey-Melchiorre

Carmel, Indiana -- For the last three years, Phired Up Productions has conducted a major research project to contribute to the fraternal movement. The annual CAMPUS GROWTH SURVEY provides very important data to fraternity/sorority professionals everywhere regarding:

  • Fraternity/sorority community sizes, council sizes, chapter sizes, etc.
  • Trends in membership
  • Norms related to formal and informal recruitment/intake practices
  • Expansion/extension opportunities to allow for collaborative conversations
  • Staffing norms

The survey is open for 2015. Phired Up is requesting that one fraternity/sorority professional on every campus in North America participate in the survey again. The deadline for participation is AUGUST 1st.

Dr. Colleen Melchiorre of Phired Up Productions coordinates the effort. Melchiorre said, “In 2014 we simply did not have the response rate we needed to create and publish a comprehensive report. We will take all measures possible this year, including personally calling all campus professionals in the world, to ensure that we meet our goal of 400 completed surveys this year.”

The team at Phired Up is also offering an incentive for participants this year. One randomly selected campus will receive $500 towards any Phired Up product or service to be used in 2016.

Some additional instructions from Dr. Colleen:

Please prepare 20 minutes to fill out the survey. Just fill it out as best you can, answer everything that you know the answer to. The survey has undergone amendments since 2012/2013 but is the same instrument as the 2014 survey.

This year, campus professionals will be asked about chapter size, community size, new member classes, recruitment policies and practices as well as information about your community as a whole. Please note if you are moving communities, it is important to connect with your predecessor to determine if they have taken the survey for the community or not and to communicate whether you have taken it to the person coming into your role. It is also vital that only ONE staff member fill out the survey per office.


“I estimate that at least twice a month I assist a campus professional using the information in the past Campus Growth Survey Reports." said Melchiorre. "We have used data to support cases for expansion, grow staffs, and compare like communities. The information is really important to a lot of professionals in their practice. I am proud of that and that’s why we have to get a lot of folks to fill it out this year.”

Please do not hesitate to reach out to Phired Up directly with questions, comments or concerns.
