In order to assist fraternity and sorority chapters complement the academic mission of the university, build relationships, foster lifelong friendships, give back to the community, and develop leadership and character in members, the Standards of Excellence was created for fraternities and sororities at Arizona State University. The fundamental purpose of the Standards of Excellence is a voluntary awards program to encourage the fraternity and sorority chapters at Arizona State University to focus on their founding values, which are crucial to the rich development of fraternity men and sorority women.
The Standards of Excellence consists of 10 Standards in the areas of: Academic Achievement, Chapter Operations, Recruitment/Intake, New Member Education, Member Development, Leadership & Campus Involvement, Service & Philanthropy, Risk Management, Financial Management, and Alumni, Volunteer, and Parent Engagement.
Points are awarded as indicated through the performance sections of each standard. Partial points may be awarded for some standards, as well as Bonus Points for exceeding certain standards. A Standards of Excellence Awards Committee is formed consisting of representation of the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life, the six governing councils, and alumni.
A chapter may achieve Excellence for a Standard by attaining all 10 possible points in that category. A chapter may achieve Satisfactory for a Standard by attaining at least eight possible points in that category.
In addition to the Standards of Excellence, chapters may nominate members, the chapter, or fellow chapters/community members for recognition in any or all of the categories below. For each nomination, nominators submit any materials, documentation, or letters of endorsement they believe best supports the nomination to be reviewed by the Awards Committee.
