Leadership has and always will be a valued Greek characteristic. It is increasingly important to college students as they attempt to enter the work force. Employers desire individuals who communicate well, are organized, and inspire others.
Millersville University offers countless opportunities for leadership, many of which are available in the Greek community. Students can hold postions in individual chapters as committee members, chairs, and general members. Each of these positions allows students to develop leadership skills like delegation, goal-setting, and interacting with others on-campus. Members are also able to hold council offices, which govern their organizations. With so many avenues for leadership, students are presented with great opportunities that can have a significant impact on their future success. They continually work to positively influence the entire Millersville campus.

Employers today seek students who are balanced and well rounded and they often look at students' leadership positions during college. At Millersville, student organizations are run by student leaders.
