Fraternal Excellence Annual Report & Awards Application
The purpose of the Fraternal Excellence Program is to establish standards to ensure that every Fraternity and Sorority at UWF is well managed and is fully committed to the highest quality of student experience for each of its members and that they are recognized for their achievement of those standards. The standards are the five values of Fraternity & Sorority Life at UWF: Academic Excellence, Ethical Leadership, Community, Personal Development, and Stewardship.
The Fraternal Excellence Program was adopted to improve on the existing Greek Excellence Awards application and to help define the standards of excellence for chapters. This program will also provide Fraternity & Sorority Life with an annual report for each chapter on their goals, accomplishments, and challenges. A full description of the program, application process, standards of achievement, planning standards and services provided by the University for each standard can be found in the Fraternal Excellence Program document.
In order to be recognized as a chapter in good standing with Fraternity & Sorority Life, fraternities and sororities must complete (meaning all sections applicable should be filled out) the Fraternal Excellence Annual Report & Awards Application which then serves as the chapter’s annual report. Chapters failing to turn a completed application in by the start of the Spring Semester will be placed on Inactive Status for Reservations, will not be able to participate in Fraternity & Sorority Life events, and their national advisors will be contacted.
