Good Standing and Achieved Excellence

Program Overview

Sorority and Fraternity Life created the Good Standing and Achieved Excellence Program to clearly communicate expectations as well as provide a platform for organizations to track their events and achievements throughout the year. This program was designed after benchmarking similar Sorority and Fraternity Life community's expectations, surveying National Organizations requirements, and analyzing existing Good Standing and Minimum Standards programs at various institutions. The Sorority and Fraternity Life Good Standing program status is separate from any university conduct process and outcome for individuals or organizations.

The Achieved Excellence program complements and elevates the Good Standing program by encouraging and recognizing the excellent work of our community. In addition to the minimum expectations to achieve Good Standing, chapters now have the opportunity to be recognized for deeper engagement in Sorority and Fraternity Life and university programs. Chapters can achieve excellence in four different badges, or areas of focus. Chapters that earn badge(s) of Achieved Excellence will be recognized at the end of each semester.
