One of the primary goals of the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life is to promote leadership and personal development among students involved in fraternities and sororities. This is accomplished in a number of ways, including through our daily interactions with students, through our advising of organizations and governing councils, and through programs designed to promote these ideals.
Students are therefore encouraged to advantage of all that membership in a Greek organization has to offer, by applying to participate in the various leadership opportunities offered through the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life. More information about our signature leadership programs can be found under the Leadership tab, located on the left side of the page.
