Fraternities and sororities support the mission of the University of Rochester by enhancing the sense of community within each student through their programming.

The members benefit by being challenged and developing skills and competencies that prepare them for success.  The community benefits as a result of programs designed to enrich the social, philanthropic, intellectual, and cultural interests of the community.

As part of a larger community, fraternities and sororities foster the ability of students to work across boundaries by promoting co-sponsorship and planning of programs with diverse groups.

Another important function of Greek-lettered organizations is philanthropy and service. Service to the campus, Greater Rochester area and philanthropic support of local, regional, and national agencies is a goal which all sororities and fraternities at the University of Rochester are proud to share.

Each national Greek-lettered organization has a designated philanthropy for which local chapters organize fundraising events. In addition, many chapters give their time to local agencies in support of particular cause or issue. By dedicating themselves to helping others, fraternities and sororities assist their members in the development of moral character and a sense of community.
