Caucus Chair Leadership Program

It’s On Us is accepting applications for the 2022-2023 Caucus Chair Leadership Development Program! Starting this Fall, we’ll be onboarding 12 Caucus Chairs to undergo masterclass training sessions with industry experts. Caucus Chairs will lead the development of our caucus system, which will be opened up for It’s On Us students to join in Spring 2023. 

What is a caucus?

A caucus is a forum for people to collect around common ideas with the purpose of advancing socio-cultural causes. Starting Spring 2023, It’s On Us will be opening membership to our 11 caucuses for students to join and engage with issue-specific causes. Each caucus represents a specific identity or social group that will be used to shape prevention programming, recruit students, and provide rapid-response channels for our It’s On Us campus chapter network.

What caucuses will there be?

The following roles will be represented in the 2022-2023 Caucus Chair Leadership program:

  • Greek Life: Fraternities
