The fraternity and sorority community currently encompasses more than 3,700 students which represents just about 16 percent of the undergraduate population; hence, fraternity and sorority life is incredibly dynamic at Virginia Tech. As such, there are three main aspects of which great focus will be placed in order to build upon the solid foundation of the interfraternal membership experience at Virginia Tech: community development, leadership and learning, and strategic planning.
The Fraternity and Sorority Life Advisory Council
The Fraternity and Sorority Life Council was formed in Summer 2010 and the purpose of the advisory council is to think strategically, measurably, collaboratively, and inspirationally regarding the fraternity and sorority community.
The council is charged with developing a visioning document for the community including vision, mission, strategic goal areas, and strategic plan. This group of approximately 20 members is a mix of students, chapter advisors, alumni/ae members, university administrators, and community members. The group has met each month since August and during Fall 2011, the vision, mission, and strategic goal areas will be finalized.
