Florida Greek Standards Accreditation Program

The Florida Greek Standards Accreditation Program (FGS) is a set of guidelines and

achievements that establish minimum operating standards for social sororities and fraternities

at the University of Florida, as well as opportunities for demonstrating success above and beyond

the minimum expectations.

 

Based on the community’s tenets of scholarship, leadership, service and community, this

program is designed to identify and encourage high ideals, principles, and standards critical to

the success of each organization and its members. The FGS was originally created as simply a

minimum standards program. Florida Greek Standards has since been updated as an

accreditation program and its development included input from university staff, students, chapter

advisors and other important members from the community and fraternal movement. Through

the accreditation assessment, the accomplishments and progress of each chapter can be

monitored relative to meeting the established standards and opportunities for excellence.

In addition to complying with all applicable University rules, regulations, policies, and

procedures, social sororities and fraternities at the University of Florida are expected to maintain

accreditation by achieving the necessary requirements contained in the FGS. The FGS is divided

into eight sections: Scholarship, Service, Leadership, Community, Alumni/Alumnae Relations, Risk Management, Administrative Life and Facility Management (if applicable).

All submissions are due by November 17th at 5:00pm. Submission Link: https://orgs.studentinvolvement.ufl.edu/Forms/fgs2021
