Fraternities and Sororities
Fraternities and sororities have partnered with Indiana University since 1845. Though much has changed over the years, the core values of these organizations have remained the same. There are 71 fraternities and sororities at IU involving over 6,500 students. Greek organizations seek to provide members with opportunities to lead, serve, build positive relationships, and grow intellectually.
Values and Philosophy
We are committed to providing students with a learning experience that enables them to become better men and women during their collegiate experience. The council leadership has set the Pillars of Excellence as the standards for the IU fraternity and sorority community:
- Values Integration: Encouraging fraternity and sorority members to embody the purposes of their organizations.
- Leadership Development: Challenging students to lead for the greater good.
- Civic Engagement: Active Participation in meaningful, comprehensive civic education and community partnerships.
- Intellectual Development and Academic Support: Supporting an academic and experiential learning environment that enhances the undergraduate experience and encourages academic integrity.
- Brotherhood and Sisterhood: Creating a fraternity and sorority community that fosters a culture of care and concern for all.
Student Life and Learning supports the student initiatives of integrating the Mission, Values and Purpose into their organizational activities.
