Advisor Academy

Providing support, education and connection to local chapter advisors

Advisor Academy

The Advisor Academy is a series of events exclusively for chapter advisors focused on high-level learning and inspiration. Delivered both virtually as conference-style events in-person as drive-in-style events, each session is an opportunity to hear from Beta staff, keynote presenters and other volunteers on a variety of topics that are essential to highly successful advising efforts.

Advisor Academy Highlights

Advisor Academy is designed to provide our most essential volunteers with education that will help them to better guide, coach and mentor chapter leaders. Each session provides an inspirational keynote from a Fraternity leader, as well as an opportunity for advisors to participate in focused breakout sessions of their choice on topics such as:
  • Advisor Basics
  • Navigating Student Mental Health
  • Planning Safe Chapter Events
  • Strong Officer Transitions
  • Creating an Inclusive Brotherhood
  • Am I at Risk?
  • Insurance Basics for Advisors
  • and many more!
Advisors are also encouraged to network with others from similar campus types, chapter sizes and/or facing similar advising challenges.
Beta Theta Pi invites feedback from past and future Advisor Academy attendees about desired topics for breakout sessions. If you have an idea, please send it to Director of Leadership and Education Dr. Eric Buller.
