Student Involvement enhances the Elon experience by connecting the fraternity/sorority community through its foundational principles, serves as guides and advocates for student development, and creates opportunities for personal growth through values-based leadership and engagement.
Student Involvement will execute its mission by supporting student learning and development in the following areas that reflect the intersection of fraternal values and Elon values:
- Intellectual Development: sororities and fraternities will hold education, academic performance, and intellectual development of members as the highest priority
- Effective Leadership: sororities and fraternities will promote opportunities for leadership development through active participation and peer accountability
- Responsible Citizenship: sororities and fraternities will actively contribute in the community through service, philanthropy, and other activities designed to expand one’s viewpoints
- Inclusive Environments: sororities and fraternities will promote the exploration of personal identities and create an environment that celebrates diverse perspectives where all people feel respected, appreciated, and included
- Values / Ethics Integration: sororities and fraternities will integrate their values, missions, and standards throughout their collegiate chapter operations, while maintaining connectedness with alumni and the greater University community through mentoring and advising
Fraternity and sorority involvement can provide students with an invaluable experience during their time at Elon University. Fraternities and sororities have existed as an Elon tradition for over 80 years. The fraternity and sorority community provides brotherhood and sisterhood for over 2,600 men and women every year. Approximately 44% of undergraduate students at Elon are members of the fraternity and sorority community, which is comprised of 27 Greek-letter organizations. Three student-run councils govern these organizations: the Interfraternity Council, the National Pan-Hellenic Council, and the Panhellenic Association. In addition to their individual functions, the councils often collaborate on initiatives and programs designed to enhance the experience of all members of the fraternity and sorority community.
