Greek Community Standards

Purpose:

The University of Miami Greek Community Standards were developed by the Association of Greek Letter Organizations with the advice, input and approval of all Greek umbrella organization leaders.  They are revised on a yearly basis.  The standards are designed to: (1) Improve the management and overall quality of chapters on campus by defining clear expectations and foundations for success by which Greek chapters will be graded and held accountable; (2) Recognize and document chapter accomplishments and contributions to the campus and community; (3) Serve as an assessment tool for Greek Life; and (4) Serve as chapter award nominations for the AGLO Awards.


All Greek Chapters on campus will be evaluated in the following categories:

(1) Academic Excellence

(2) Community Service

(3) Empowering Leaders

(4) Member Development

(5) Philanthropy

(6) Social Responsibility

(7) General Requirements

 

Badges of Excellence will be awarded at the end of each fall semester, prior to Spring recruitment, based upon the activities reported for the calendar year. Badges earned will be posted on the Greek Life website, announced to the public, and generally made available as an indicator a chapter has excelled in that area.
