Lively Experiment Research Drive-In
When King Charles II granted Roger Williams the charter to found the State of Rhode Island and the Providence Plantations for new found freedom, he referred to its formation as a “lively experiment.” The NASPA Region 1 Fraternity & Sorority Knowledge Community in partnership with the Northeast Greek Leadership Association (NGLA) will be hosting a “lively experiment”--a regional drive-in focused upon enhancing the research agenda in fraternity/sorority life. We hope you will join us in engaging in conversations with colleagues as we strive to promote research and assessment initiatives and support existing research on fraternities and sororities.
