Policies & Procedures

Main Content

The mission of the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life (FSL) is to provide members with the education to practice leadership, scholarship, integrity and social responsibility in an inclusive environment of mutual respect that fosters lifelong friendships. We positively impact the University and surrounding community, while holding ourselves to the high standards reflected in our core values.

FSL provides opportunities for students in fraternities and sororities to grow and develop through active participation in their organizations. Through advisement, services, and educational programs we seek to ensure that all members have a safe undergraduate experience of high quality that reinforces the founding principles of fraternities and sororities: scholarship, community service, leadership, campus and community involvement, and sisterhood/brotherhood.

Once a member, students will find varied opportunities for growth as young adults in fraternities and sororities. Through positions of leadership in the chapter, students learn life skills that will be invaluable upon graduation. Participation in service projects and raising funds for philanthropic charities provide students with the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.


The Division of Student Affairs is committed to the recruitment and retention of a diverse and qualified student body, and to providing services that enhance their personal development and contribute to the fulfillment of their goals. The following procedures contribute to the implementation of this policy.

SIU desires to continue its healthy working relationship with the fraternity and sorority community and all of its member organizations. By maintaining a clear set of guidelines for the registration and recognition of those groups, the university will keep open those existing channels of communication and support.

These policies and procedures shall be in conformity with the registered student organization policies and regulations, as published in the RSO Handbook as well as the Student Code of Conduct.
