Standards of Excellence

The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life is pleased to announce the 2022 FSL Awards. The FSL Awards are a time to celebrate all of the achievements that chapters have had over the past year. Chapters are encouraged to use the standards listed under each category as a best practices guide to aid in planning, goal setting, and general chapter operations. Fraternity & Sorority Life will recognize those chapters that demonstrate excellence in meeting these standards.

Purpose of the Awards?

These awards are meant to celebrate our chapter's accomplishments as well as help them to see areas of growth.

These awards will also help our chapters to report their success back to their national
organizations and allow the office staff to write letters of good standing to the national
organization that more accurately depict the achievements of the chapter.
