UNF’s fraternity and sorority community is grounded on
five key principles; scholarship, integrity, community engagement, leadership,
and personal growth. These principles
also serve as the means for chapter evaluation through our Chapter
As students, our members are
first and foremost here at UNF to obtain an education. Our studies should be of highest priority,
and as Greek students, we are held to a higher standard for our academic
performance, thus our pursuits should reflect that higher standard. It is because of our high academic standards
that fraternity and sorority members are more likely to graduate within four years
than non-Greek affiliated students.
focused on perpetuating the highest ideals, fraternities and sororities ought
to conduct themselves with the utmost respect for their membership as well as
other chapters and UNF students, faculty, and staff members. Operating and hosting events in good taste
and with respect to all, maintaining proper relationships with members and new
members, and respecting other campus organizations are necessary to
demonstrating this respect, civility, and ethical conduct.
As fraternity and
sorority members, our privilege on and off campus obligates us to give back to
the community, our campus and our city.
This can take the form of philanthropy, raising money for a non-profit organization,
or through service, in which our members use their time and talents to help
others. The UNF fraternity and sorority
community continues to raise over $147,000 for these causes and perform more
than 37,000 hours of service.
is a cornerstone for all of our organizations.
Our organizational missions and histories are dedicated towards making
people better so they can lead others in ethical and moral ways. Chapters create these pipelines through
involvement in other on-campus organizations; encouraging leaders to take
positions within chapters and councils, having students attend leadership
retreats and training, and attending state, regional, and national meetings
hosted by their organization.
Fraternities and sororities exist to perpetuate the
highest forms of man and womanhood.
Aiding our membership in their development as men and women of character
and diverse interests is essential to maintaining and fulfilling this mission. And somewhere along our undergraduate
journey, we learn more about the men and women we are through personal growth. Chapters regularly host educational programs
to its members across a vast range of topics, including diversity, wellness,
risk management, etc.
