UNF Fraternity/Sorority Life Community Standards
The University of North Florida maintains standards that state expectations for fraternities and sororities. These standards were established between UNF and the fraternity and sorority community to foster a healthy, constructive, and successful undergraduate experience for students. Each standard area identifies aspects of chapter operations necessary to ensure a quality experience for fraternity and sorority members. Standards are separated into five categories reflective of community values:
Each value-based area of excellence will have a series of questions and success points, in which fraternities and sororities should use as a guide for implementing activities throughout the year. The list is generated to help characters get ideas for what excellence looks like in each category, but should not serve as a checklist. Judges will not use the success points when determining winners.
Minimum standards for awards eligibility have been established in each area. These minimum standards must be achieved to receive an awards interview. They can be found below.
Fraternities and sororities at UNF pride themselves on having high standards of participation and membership. We excel in many areas on the campus, including community involvement, leadership participation, and philanthropic/service endeavors. To recognize chapters that go above and beyond in these categories and more, the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life and the Sigma Mu chapter of Order of Omega host the Greek Awards every spring.
