Our Mission

The Fraternity Movement at the University of Massachusetts Amherst has a long and rich tradition. As old as the school itself, the fraternity movement has supported men and women in their endeavors to be successful students.

The Office of Fraternities and Sororities acknowledges the part a sound fraternity and sorority system can play in supporting the overall mission of the university. Therefore, the Office of Fraternities and Sororities continues to strive to offer its students the means necessary to develop and promote a fraternity and sorority system that complements the greater efforts of the institution. We will assist our students in developing the skills necessary to conduct themselves in a manner that reflects the values and standards of the Fraternity Movement and the university.

Academic excellence, loyalty to alma mater, philanthropy, strong leadership, a healthy lifestyle, friendship, and high moral standards are the foundations upon which we place our efforts. Working collaboratively with the national offices, the alumni/ae, the leadership, the greater community of Amherst, and the university, the Office of Fraternities and Sororities will fulfill its obligations to its constituency, the members of the Greek System, with integrity and fairness.
