About Us

Chapter Statuses

Transparency is a key factor in the success of the fraternity and sorority community. By highlighting our successes and challenges, we help students make more informed decisions about the community. This page highlights the accreditation statuses of our fraternities and sororities and any awards they have won over the past four years.

To be Accredited means the organization has met or exceeded its plans in the twelve standards of the Expectations for Excellence. To be Not Accredited means the organization made insufficient progress towards its goals, demonstrated weakness in several standards of the Expectations for Excellence, and displayed poor self-awareness as an organization.

Visit the Expectations for Excellence page for more information about the accreditation process.
