The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, a department within the Office of the Dean of Students, is dedicated to the growth and success of the Greek community and to the individual development of fraternity and sorority members. Specifically, the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life advises and provides guidance to the fraternities and sororities associated with the four Greek Governing Councils: the Alabama Panhellenic Association (APA), the Alabama National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), the Alabama Interfraternity Council (IFC), and the Alabama United Greek Council (UGC).
Each council has a different focus, operational structure, history, recruitment or intake procedure, and key dates. Chapters range in size from 3 to 471 members. Each chapter offers members a variety of opportunities to hold leadership positions in the chapter and at the University, participate in volunteer and service activities on campus and in the community, become involved in campus life and achieve success academically, personally and professionally.
The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life strives to offer chapters on-campus support services, which may include serving as a liaison between faculty, alumni advisors, national offices, and parents, developing values-based leadership development programming, offering training in areas such as chapter operations, diversity, risk management, health and safety and membership recruitment, monitoring the academic performance of fraternity and sorority members, and recognizing the positive achievements and contributions of community members.
