Mission Statement

Since the establishment of the first nationally affiliated Greek-Letter organizations at Georgia Southwestern State University in the 1960’s fraternities and sororities have played an important role in complementing the educational mission and purpose of the University.  It is the intent of the University to preserve and enhance this relationship through a spirit of mutual respect and understanding, so that the fraternities and sororities and the University may continue to be partners in providing positive learning environments, whereby each member will be challenged toward leadership, service, and excellence.  Furthermore, GSW believes that inherent in every Greek organization are the ideals of scholarship, community service, leadership, brotherhood and sisterhood, spiritual awareness, personal integrity, and social development.  The University also believes that each organization has the responsibility and obligation to foster and promote these ideals in its day to day operations.

University Recognition of Fraternities and Sororities

Recognition is the formal process by which GSW agrees that a social fraternity or sorority may function on the campus, enroll members from the student body through recruitment activities, and identify its chapter with the University.   

In order to be a recognized fraternal organization at Georgia Southwestern State University, the organization must meet the following requirements: 

    1. Be a designated interest group, colony, or fully chartered chapter of an inter/national, social fraternity or sorority.  
    2. All members of said interest group, colony, or chapter must meet the requirements for participation in student organizations at Georgia Southwestern State University. 

The organizations reviewed for recognition by the University under this policy shall be afforded the following entitlement: 

    1. Social Fraternities and Sororities are entitled to single-sex membership under the provisions of Section 86.14 of the regulations promulgated under Title IX of the U.S. Education Act of Amendments of 1972. 
    2. Fraternities and sororities are entitled to be subjectively selective in their membership within the limits of the non-discrimination policies in the constitution of the respective inter/national fraternal organization. 
    3. Fraternities and sororities are legal corporations external to the University.  In all cases, their chapter corporations, alumni corporations, and national/regional or local Greek organizations are incorporated separately from the University.
