The Minimum Standards for Fraternities and Sororities is implemented to improve the management and the quality of the fraternity and sorority experience at Southeast Missouri State University. The agreement is between the member chapters of the Interfraternity Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council and Panhellenic Conference as a condition of registered status as a Greek organization through the Office of Greek Life. These Shared Standards will be implemented and documented by the chapters and governing councils in coordination with the Office of Greek Life. Any minimum standard program must be approved by the governing council and/or the Office of Greek life.
To improve the management and quality of fraternities and sororities at Southeast by outlining a clear, but comprehensive, set of standards that each chapter must attain to be registered as a Greek organization through the Office of Greek Life. (1) to provide an annual evaluation tool in which fraternities and sororities can participate in a self-evaluation process and receive recognition for surpassing minimum standards, and (2) to empower the Greek community to be part of the decision making process in determining how they wish to function within the greater University community. The intent of the Greek minimum standards process is to provide a framework by which chapters can quantify and document their activities and successes, while creating a tool by which fraternities and sororities can be evaluated.
