Fraternity & Sorority Life, in conjunction with the Division of Student Affairs, welcomes new fraternities to expand and affiliate directly with the institution. In addition, CU Boulder extends the invitation to the fraternities in the Boulder community to re-affiliate with the institution as Registered Social Greek Organizations.
The institution recognizes the complexity of the issue and understands the importance of engaging internal and external stakeholders if and when a fraternity might be interested in developing a formal relationship with CU Boulder.
If a fraternity chooses to affiliate with CU Boulder, the fraternity and its members may receive the following benefits:
- Access to support for programs and events through the professional staff at the Center for Student Involvement
- The provision of ongoing advising, education and resources on topics of new member education, Greek values, fiscal management, recruitment, risk management, program planning and other appropriate topics through Fraternity & Sorority Life
- Free access to campus resources for educational resources like Title IX/Sexual Assault Prevention training, alcohol education, finance training, etc.
- Involvement on campus committees and working groups
- Inclusion on the CU Boulder website and access to CU Boulder social media avenues
- Ability to prominently advertise on campus for recruitment and special events
- Campus-supported recruitment efforts, including interactions with potential members through new student welcome programs, fairs, open houses, etc.
- Assistance in recruiting faculty/staff advisor(s), if requested
- Access to semester grade reports
- Office space for council leaders through the University Memorial Center space allocation process
- Reduced fees for campus facilities
- Use of university name within branding guidelines
- The ability to officially partner with sororities and other campus groups on events and programs
If a chapter would like to begin the affiliation process, chapter leaders may contact Stephanie Baldwin in Fraternity & Sorority Life for more information at 303-492-6359 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to become a university-affiliated fraternity and receive the benefits listed above, fraternities must sign a Recognized Social Greek Organizations (RSGO) agreement that includes provisions to follow all university policy. The agreements also outline certain conditions aimed to increase safety, accountability and student success.
