The Greek Senate is the governing body for all social, values-centered fraternities and sororities on campus. Its purpose is to discuss, adopt, and carry out procedures necessary for the general welfare of the fraternal community. The Senate instills the principles of sisterhood and brotherhood among the membership and within each fraternity and sorority chapter. Greek Senate has the power to direct and assist member organizations with social, philanthropic, and educational activities. This governing body works under the advisement of the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life and in cooperation with inter/ national headquarters for the recognized chapters on campus. The Greek Senate seeks to foster unity among the fraternal community. In addition to the Greek Senate, there are three additional councils that assist in governing the community. They include the Interfraternity Council (IFC), Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), and Panhellenic Council (PHC). Each of these councils has a respective Executive Board and focuses on planning programs and advocating on behalf of their member groups.
