Chapters & Councils

Fraternity & Sorority Life is responsible for managing and advising the entire Greek community at the George Washington University, enhancing the fraternity and sorority experience of the GW students, while ensuring the continued existence and growth of those organizations. Recognized fraternity and sorority chapters at GW contribute positively to student life through programs and services provided to the university community.

Fraternity & Sorority Life specifically advises four major umbrella Greek organizations:

The Fraternity & Sorority Life staff serve as interactive liaisons between the FSL community and GW, advocating for the needs of the community, ensuring their voice and concerns are heard, and promoting the positive qualities of the FSL community to the GW community, including the administration, students and faculty. In addition, the office assesses the developmental needs of the FSL community and provides appropriate educational programs regarding issues such as: service to the community, member education, discrimination, hazing, substance abuse, scholarship, and risk management.

In addition, Fraternity & Sorority Life works closely with the national and international headquarters of each organizations on GW's campus to ensure positive and continued growth among the chapters, as well as compliance with university policies such as the Code of Student Conduct, FSL policies, and the requirements of national and umbrella organizations.

Ultimately, Fraternity & Sorority Life at GW is about community, scholarship, community service/ philanthropy, brother/sisterhood, and leadership. It's about enhancing the GW and DC communities through service and social functions. It's about traditions, learning valuable lessons, and establishing life-long friendships. And, the purpose of FSL is to ensure that this is all made possible for any student who wants to take part in this awesome opportunity called being Greek!
