College is a time for exploration and development. Each year of collegiate membership brings with it programs and opportunities that guide our collegiate members as they begin to learn and refine the unique strengths that make them real, strong women.
Our educational focus is to further develop real, strong women.
The Real. Strong. Women. Experience® is a promise Alpha Chi Omega makes to members to provide an environment where they can become the best versions of themselves through programming such as those offered below!
Domestic Violence Awareness Education
Members are dedicated to raising awareness and educating others about domestic violence and sexual assault prevention. In addition, Alpha Chi Omega works to educate its own members, helping them to avoid unhealthy relationships and giving them tools to build their own healthy relationships.
HARM REDUCTION EDUCATION
Our harm reduction approach and philosophy to risk management education helps members move from “you have to follow these rules” to “you can make smarter choices for yourself and your sisters.” Our harm reduction programming for chapters helps them with individual and group decision-making and helps increase overall safety in the chapter environment. While alcohol misuse is the most common risk management issue on campuses nationwide, Alpha Chi Omega’s harm reduction approach and philosophy also addresses other challenges facing college students such as bullying, hazing, drug misuse, mental health and dignified decision making.
Mental Health Education
Alpha Chi Omega recognizes the need for educational experiences that engage our members in the critical topic of mental health. Through programming and awareness initiatives, our organization strives to provide opportunities for members to authentically discuss their emotional well-being, discover practices to improve their self-care, and promote taking action to protect their own mental health while supporting others.
Women & Wisdom
Women & Wisdom is an online networking experience designed to connect alumnae and collegians through professional interests and experiences. Alumnae and collegians in their junior or senior year are invited to participate. This interactive experience provides resources and tutorials to help guide mentors and mentees in developing impactful relationships, achieving goals, and gaining new skills and competencies.
As Alpha Chi Omega’s member education program, MyJourney connects our core values of wisdom, devotion and achievement to the life experiences collegiate members face during their college career. This program is peer- facilitated; sisters from the chapter facilitate discussions and conversations on everything from negotiation to leadership, philanthropy to relationships, diversity and inclusion and more.
Members can access this program after logging in.
Our four programs are rotated among collegiate chapters each year and include InTune, Alcohol Skills Training Program (ASTP), Let’s Talk Love and Kaleidoscope. These four distinct rotational programs cover topics such as vulnerability, reducing risk, dating violence and more.
