Joining an organization can be an overwhelming experience of learning, connection, and excitement. Member Onboarding is the process of joining and being incorporated into the organization. It is our aim to ensure you fully understand the organization you have joined to include DKE History, The Impact of DKE, DKE Standards, New Member Education, and a Health & Safety education program called “TightRope.”
As a result of completing this course, members will be able to:
- Understand the basic aspects of the Fraternity’s history
- Identify the impact the organization has made over the course of DKE history
- Recognize the organization’s standards and philosophy around Health & Safety
- Possess a basic understanding of harm prevention through the completion of the TightRope program provided by BeingPlaid.
