Chapter Expectations

The Center for Fraternity & Sorority Life's Chapter Expectations represents baseline expectations for how chapters are to engage in fraternity/sorority programming and in the greater university community. 'Chapter Expectations' include the most important activities in which chapters must engage to be a functioning member of the fraternity & sorority community. Chapters who are unable to meet 'Chapter Expectations' will have limited access to the following benefits for the semester immediately following:

  • Departmental Sponsorship by the Center for Fraternity & Sorority Life for specific programmatic activities.
  • CFSL-provided letters of good standing for the purposes of membership recruitment and intake, awards applications, etc.
  • Participation in Cat's Back and other student organization fairs

At the close of each semester, notification for chapters falling below Baseline Standards is provided to both the chapter and their respective National Organization.

Chapter Expectations are listed below:

  • Uphold both university policy, student code of conduct, and state and federal laws
  • Accurately report all active and new members in the appropriate timeframe
  • Only pledge/initiate enrolled UH students who meet your organization's/governing council's requirements
  • Attendance at all governing council meetings
  • Log community and service hours for each member, each semester through Get Involved.
  • Full participation in the Fraternal Excellence Program (All narratives and interviews)
  • A minimum once per month meeting with your 'Chapter Coach'
  • Participation in the Fraternity/Sorority Presidents Leadership Summit and other mandatory programming (including but not limited to, All Greek Speaker, Greek Week & Future Greek Leaders Academy)
