Awards & Recognition

The calendar year 2013-2014 marked the 10th opportunity to use the Standards Program as a basis for the Greek Life Department Awards. The students who authored the Standards Program offered their community the following challenge:

Have Integrity, Be Accountable, Seek Distinction.

This year, we recognized 21 chapters who achieved excellence and distinction in one or more of the Greek community's ten shared principles. Awards were determined by reviewing materials submitted in the chapter Standards Program binders. Any chapter who met or exceeded the standard for the ten shared principles was eligible for an award.

A panel of four reviewed the binders and narrowed the eligible chapters to the top five to eight per shared principle, and presented awards to the top one to four chapters per principle. Both quantity and quality of programming was taken into consideration. Awards were given for outstanding performance in each of the ten shared principles, and to one fraternity and one sorority for overall excellence. Councils also recognized top-performing chapters based on various qualifications.
