Expectations for Excellence
In mid-November, each chapter submits an Expectations for Excellence Document (EE Document) to the Fraternity and Sorority Standards Subcommittee. The plan should include their proposed events and strategy for the calendar year while the report reviews their success in achieving their previous plan and reflects on their performance throughout the year. The chapters also give a fifteen minute presentation to a review panel composed of two staff or faculty members and a student. The Fraternity and Sorority Standards Subcommittee reviews the annual reports, as well as the feedback from the presentation review panel, along with supplemental information provided by the chapters and Fraternity and Sorority Affairs. After evaluating all of the materials, the Fraternity and Sorority Standards Subcommittee makes their accreditation decisions and provides feedback on the EE Document.
The Standards Subcommittee will notify each organization of its accreditation decision in early January. Chapters should take the accreditation status, including any provisions or recommendations, into consideration when developing their plans for the following year at the EE Strategic Planning Day.
