How to use this toolkit

Think of this site as a tool chest full of ideas and examples, not a rigid step by step guide.


Your chapter is meant to be lead by YOU with the goal of meeting YOUR campus’ individual and unique needs. You won’t find a “one size fits all” manual here, but rather a hub of best practices and tools to make your own.


Split into 3 easy sections, this toolkit will provide you resources on how to start your Deeds Not Words campus chapter, get it running, and a variety of templates that will save you time and help you amplify your efforts.


Since this is a living toolkit -- you will have an opportunity to play a key role in the shaping of our campus chapters. Have an idea or a best practice you want your neighboring schools to know about? Let us know!
