Our Vision

Members of fraternities and sororities will uphold the mission of the University and live true to the ritualistic values and principles of their member organizations.

Our Values

Service – Fraternity and sorority members are committed to giving back and serving the community through mutually beneficial experiences.

Scholarship – Scholastic standards are a vital part of the fraternity and sorority life experience. Our organizations recognize that academics are the reason why their members attend college. Therefore, our community is committed to academic achievement through chapter support, individual accountability, incentive programs, and utilization of campus resources.

Friendship - Fraternities and sororities provide a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood through retreats, social interactions, programming with other chapters and campus entities, parent events, alumni activities, and continued practice of ritual.

Leadership – Members believe that success for the individual and the chapter is dependent on developing skills and personal qualities that enhance the growth and potential of each individual member.
