The Recognition Policy constitutes the University procedure for the conferral or withdrawal of recognition of fraternities and sororities. Here is the history of the current policy:
|2009||Amended [more soon]|
|2010||Amended [more soon]|
|2014||Amended [more soon]|
|2015||Amended [more soon]|
The fraternity/sorority system has three parts:
- The Interfraternity Council (IFC) oversees 35 fraternities.
- The Panhellenic Council (PHC) oversees 13 sororities.
- The Multicultural Greek Letter Council (MGLC) oversees 16 culturally-based fraternities and sororities.
Annual Reports by the Fraternity and Sorority Council are produced that summarize the activities of the past year. Various incidents are also reported in tabular form.
The “Greek Tri-Council” is a term used by the leaders of the above organizations whenever they get together to address issues as a group. It is not a separate organization having as members the IFC, PHC, and MGLC.
This document explains the role of the Greek Judicial Board and how the fraternity/sorority judicial system interacts with the university’s judicial system.
This webpage has links to all aspects of fraternity/sorority self-governance.
Some facts about the Greek Judicial Board:
The Greek Judicial Board is peer led board. Each of the three councils has a Vice President Judicial. Additionally each council selects student Judicial Board members through an application process annually. The students on this Greek Judicial Board are sorority and fraternity members.
If a case against a particular chapter arises, then the chair of the hearing is the Vice President Judicial of the chapter’s parent organization, i.e., the IFC, the PHC, or the MGLC.
The Director of Sorority and Fraternity Life or a designee attends the hearings and serves in an advisory capacity to the Greek Judicial Board.
Greek Judicial Board outcomes are sent to campus partners, national organizations, and alumni advisors. If the allegations are hazing, outcomes are also posted on the University’s Hazing Website
It is important to note the Greek Judicial Board cannot remove a chapter’s recognition. That is a function of the Review Board. The Review Board is chaired by the Director of OSFL and consists of students and administrators. The Review Board recommendations are made to the Executive Director of Campus and Community Engagement.
