Triangle Education Foundation Unveils New Programs At National Convention

Fri Aug 21 2015

Triangle Education Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of three new academic and leadership programs for the 2015-2016 school year.

The Gargani Academic U, Garatoni Building Better Men and the Academic Excellence Awards were formally unveiled at the Triangle Fraternity National Convention in July.

“We are excited to finally be able to share these transformational programs with the Triangle and wider Interfraternal community!” enthused Scott Bova, CFRE, President of the Triangle Education Foundation.

“With the addition of these programs, Triangle continues to lead the way with innovative programming to meet the needs of today’s undergraduate members.These programs will provide tools to help chapters succeed both in the classroom and on campus as leaders in the fields of architecture, engineering and hard sciences.We are indebted to the Gargani, Garatoni and Kahlert families for their extraordinary generosity and unwavering confidence in the Education Foundation and our ability to create and deliver cutting-edge academic and leadership programming.” said Bova.

Gargani Academic U was created to give chapters the tools to improve their academic performance.The program will be delivered to members through the Regional Leadership Conferences held in the fall.Participants of Academic U will leave with the resources and tools to create a scholarship program and scholarship improvement plan within one semester of attending.Chapters that send representatives should see a 0.25 increase in the chapter GPA within three semesters of attendance.

The Garatoni Building Better Men program is a truly innovative total-member chapter performance program.Designed to exemplify the values of Triangle Fraternity, the program recognizes that great chapters don’t just happen by the work of a few, but through the hard work and commitment of all.Building Better Men challenges chapters to excel based on Triangle’s values and standards.Chapters that are selected either the $100,000 or $25,000 award winners will have a chapter endowment fund created for their chapter.

Lastly, the Kahlert Foundation Academic Excellence awards will be given to chapters to recognize their academic achievements annually in two categories: Outstanding Academic Excellence and Most Improved Academic Excellence.These financial awards for Triangle active organizations recognize that the chapters have a myriad of membership responsibilities, but the most important responsibility is not only to Triangle, but to self, chapter and community through academic excellence.
