Being a part of our Greek Community is much more than a few years of fun, friends, and personal development. It offers a sense of accomplishment and ways to make the world a better place. Consider joining us in making a difference.
Joining a fraternity or sorority is a lifetime commitment here at UW-Whitewater. It means you are joining our family. To join, our community standards have set the following requirements:
Inquiring or participating in learning about organizations DOES NOT REQUIRE you to join a Greek organization, nor does it obligate any Greek organization to offer you membership. There is no charge either. Our community has two styles of joining. Those are formal or informal recruitment and intake processes.
Each is defined below:
Formal recruitment is the primary selection period of the year for potential new members that include scheduled events for entertaining and selecting new members. In the fall, prospective members can learn more about each sorority or fraternity that participates in formal recruitment. This process allows individuals to become acquainted with each organization to make an informed decision about membership.
An intake process is the educational process that one goes through to become a member of an organization. This process is different for each organization that does intake. In general, a potential new member decides which organization to join by showing interest towards a particular organization in ways such as attending the organization's events, contacting the president of the organization, etc.
UW-Whitewater Greek Organizations that Participate in Intake:
UW-W employees serve as advisors to Whitewater's 230+ student organizations and clubs. They are full-time employees of the institution that have agreed to serve in this volunteer capacity. Each year confirmation of their position is sent from the Assistant Chancellor for Student Affairs to formalize their commitment and coverage.
Greek Academic Advisors are volunteer UW-W faculty and staff. They serve as the primary connector between the academic mission of the University and the Chapter. They assist and advise the Chapter in ways to improve their academic performance and achievement. The Academic Advisor was previously known at the Campus Advisor that every student organization is required to have.
Without the service of these individuals, the quality of the student experience would be much less. Student Activities & Involvement is very thankful for their time and efforts.
Individuals interested in assisting the Group Community in this role should contact Student Activities & Involvement at (262) 472-1471.
Expectations of Greek Academic Advisors
Empower students to organize and run their chapter and to foster academic progress and achievement.
In genuine brotherhood and sisterhood, we the Greek Community of UW-Whitewater declare the following: That the Greek system will consist of strong leaders, who demonstrate moral and ethical conduct, as well as promote good scholarship. We are dedicated to building a better sense of community on and off campus that respects and embraces diversity among ourselves and others. We will continue to promote unity within our chapters, with one another, and with faculty, staff, and administration of UW-Whitewater.
