Educational and Leadership Programs
The Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation promotes the education and development of leaders with emphasis on young women. As allowed by the IRS, grants to the Fraternity fund this programming.
Speakers – Attendees at ZTA’s National Leadership Conference, International Convention, Panhellenic Conferences and other regional seminars benefit from speakers with expertise in areas that fulfill the Foundation’s mission. The Foundation provides funding for these speakers.
Educational Programs – Programs have focused on eating disorders, AIDS, alcohol abuse, date rape and hazing prevention. In addition to a written program and presentation guide, some of these programs include video CDs, DVDs and brochures. Educational articles in ZTA's quarterly magazine, Themis, have addressed issues such as campus crime, aging, breast cancer, acquaintance rape, time management, helicopter parenting, voter awareness, alcohol abuse, bereavement and the safety of online communities like Facebook.
Traveling Leadership Consultants – The Foundation supports portions of the Traveling Leadership Consultant program dealing with communication, leadership development, crisis management and other educational aspects.
House Directors Seminar – Every two years, the Foundation funds a House Directors Seminar for both new and experienced ZTA House Directors. The weekend workshop addresses issues ranging from nutrition to house and food service management to safety tips. The Zeta Tau Alpha Fraternity Housing Corporation facilitates and manages this seminar.
Outstanding Alumnae Awards – At the 1982 Convention, the Foundation introduced the Outstanding Alumnae Awards to recognize outstanding Zeta Tau Alpha alumnae who have made notable contributions in their professions and to society. As featured Convention speakers, these women uniquely serve as role models for our members. Past recipients represent a wide variety of interests including a Pulitzer Prize winner, the first woman Marine Corps General, award-winning journalists, the director of the Federal Trade Commission and several philanthropists. Applications for nominations for these awards are available after Convention and are due in the fall prior to the next Convention.
