Final report and recommendations Details Title Final report and recommendations Contributor(s) AFA Research & Development Strategic Framework WorkgroupHassell-Goodman, Sharrell (editor)Schutts, Joshua (editor) Date 2016 Abstract This white paper presents the results from the AFA Research & Development Workgroup. This workgroup was charged with the development of a list of recommendations to inform AFA’s research agenda. The workgroup had three primary outcomes: (1) curate a list of topical areas that it believes merit earnest inquiry in service of Fraternity/Sorority Life professionals, (2) develop a big-picture strategy for engaging scholars and researchers in the field, and (3) identify metrics or key performance indicators that could help measure the growth and success of AFA’s research agenda. The group successfully completed each of its anticipated outcomes. It is the belief of this workgroup that the recommendations presented herein will ensure that research and scholarship attain a greater role within the Association. To that end, we believe that an increased focus on research and scholarly activity will consequently increase the prestige of AFA and the profession of fraternity/sorority advising.
