The AILG Mentoring (formerly “Champions”) Committee has the following scope:
- The AILG Fraternity Culture Committee has recognized the impacts — both positive and negative — that fraternity alumni can have on the practices that that the committee was established to deal with. This led to the establishment of the Mentoring committee, with participation from AILG along with MIT staff and undergraduate leaders.
- The focus of the Mentoring committee will be to recognize what it means to be good citizen of the FSILG/MIT/Global Community and to enable alumni to be more visible and positive examples of such citizenship.
- The Mentoring committee will develop proposals that will encourage fraternity alumni to set strong, positive examples for their undergraduate chapters.
- The committee’s proposals may include establishing programs and reward systems intended to motivate fraternity alumni serve as strong, positive role models, and for undergraduate members to have high expectations from their alumni.
- The committee’s proposals may also include training methods to enable alumni to better communicate positive citizenship examples and to deal with the inevitable questions and resistance they may face from both undergraduates and other alumni.
