Standards Program

Fraternal Organizations are a vital part of campus life at Georgia College and are recognized for providing many positive opportunities and experiences to members. Fraternity and sorority life can help shape the personal, moral, ethical, and social development of each member. The following standards program was developed to motivate chapters to strive for excellence in all areas of fraternity and sorority life especially in scholarship, risk management, chapter development, service and philanthropy, and campus involvement. Striving to meet and exceed this challenge will ensure that positive growth continues and each fraternity and sorority continues to demonstrate it’s true potential for Georgia College, the community, and fraternal organizations nationwide. The Standards Program will serve as both an accreditation for each chapter and a measurement for determining the Outstanding Chapter(s) for the Fraternity/Sorority Awards program.
