Fraternity & Sorority Life

The Achievement Expectations (AE) Program is in its fifth year since being launched in August of 2013.  The primary goal of this program is to evaluate the performance of all our chapters, and provide a community-wide picture of what is occurring in Fraternity & Sorority Life in order to offer guidance for areas of potential improvement.  The program has seven categories: Administrative, Academic, Community Service & Philanthropy, Chapter Development, Leadership, Community Building & Campus Engagement, and Risk Management. In each category, we expect all organizations to meet specific targets by completing and submitting documents regarding their chapter’s activities and by participating in community programming.  Within the seven categories, there are ten subcategories on which each organization is reviewed. 

Key points and a baseline summary of the findings for Fall 2018 are as follows:

Fall 2018 Summary:

  • Five chapters (Gamma Phi Beta, Kappa Phi Lambda, Lambda Theta Alpha, Pi Beta Phi, Sigma Gamma Rho) met expectations in all seven categories compared to four chapters in Winter 2018.

  • 22 chapters met or exceeded expectations in at least eight of the ten subcategories compared to 12 chapters in Winter 2018.
  • The average Community participation was at least 70% in seven subcategories compared to only two subcategories in Winter 2018.

  • 45 of 51 chapters met the expectation of a chapter GPA of 2.75 or better with 38 chapters exceeding expectations with a chapter GPA of 3.20 or better.

  • Community Service was the lowest subcategory average participation (62%) for the Community.

Key Points:

  • The average participation for the Community in each subcategory increased overall this semester compared to Winter 2018.

  • Academically (GPA), overall chapters are very successful.

  • The two categories of highest participation are Administrative and Risk Management Programming, which consists of records pertaining to each organization and membership and participating in offerings and submitting documentation that promote responsible behavior, respectively.

  • Participation varied by council affiliation with Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) and Panhellenic Association (Panhel) chapters on average most consistently participating and meeting or exceeding expectations.

  • We are requesting that organizations continue to talk often about the importance of the Achievement Expectations Program, in order to increase participation and promote the continuing establishment of healthy chapters.

The evaluation period for the AE Program occurs at the end of the Fall and Winter Semester. A list of previous reports can be found here.  Each chapter was asked to document their participation by the end of each semester. This has allowed for more effective tracking of trends half-way through the year and provided a framework for discussion and guidance when meeting with chapter leaders.
