Greek Community Council

The Greek Community Council is the funding source for most major programming for the Greek community at Ohio University such as All-Council Meetings, the All Greek Expo, the Officer Training Retreat, Homecoming Week festivities, the Greek Week competition, and the Sorority & Fraternity Life Awards Banquet. Funding comes from a fee charged to affiliated students through their governing council, and is overseen by staff members in the Sorority & Fraternity Life office. For major programming events (such as Homecoming and Greek Week), budgeting is also done by a student planning committee.

 

Sorority & Fraternity Life Committee

The Sorority & Fraternity Life Committee is a standing committee through Ohio University's Faculty Senate. The committee is comprised of representatives of all five senates, students, faculty, and staff. The SFL Committee is responsible for upholding the academic guidelines for individual sororities and fraternities, reviewing matters affecting the Greek community, overseeing expansion and reinstatement efforts, and for making policy recommendations to the Vice President for Student Affairs.
