Phase III: Spring 2019

Chapter Leadership Standards

Leadership positions in residential sorority and fraternity houses must be held by junior or senior students who reside in the chapter house.

Implementation Plan

Recognizing housing is already in place for 2018-2019, and likely also for 2019-2020, we have modified the implementation schedule as outlined below:

  • Those sororities and fraternities who do not have two (2) officers in their junior or senior year living in the house during the spring 2019 semester will be exempt from the live-in requirement if :
    • two (2) of their current officers, including President, are a junior or senior; and
    • the timeline presents a demonstrated hardship*.
  • Those sororities and fraternities who do not have two (2) officers in their junior or senior year living in the house during the 2019-20 academic year will be exempt from the live-in requirement if:
    • two (2) of their current officers, including President, are a junior or senior; and
    • the timeline presents a demonstrated hardship*.
  • Starting in the 2020-21 academic year, two (2) officers who are juniors or seniors must live in the house, including the chapter President. Two (2) other officers must be a junior or senior, but do not have to live in the house.
  • Starting in the 2021-22 academic year the expectation will be that four (4) chapter officers, including chapter President, are juniors or seniors and all four of these officers must live in the house. 

Chapter Review Board

A comprehensive review of the Chapter Review Board process that governs recognition for sororities and fraternities will be conducted and submitted for my approval. The review will include, but not be limited to, structure, procedures, process, membership, and community expectations.
