Greek Life at the Capstone
The Greek community at UA is one of the largest and most vibrant in the United States. With over 8,600 students, comprising over 29 percent of the undergraduate student body, UA is home to 63 social Greek-letter organizations. Since fall 2011, the university has held the coveted honor of being the largest Greek community in the nation with regard to overall fraternity and sorority membership.
The Office of Greek Affairs, a department within the Office of the Dean of Students, is home to four full time professional staff members and four graduate assistants dedicated to the growth and success of the Greek community and to the individual development of fraternity and sorority members. Specifically, the Office of Greek Affairs advises and provides guidance to the fraternities and sororities associated with the four Greek Governing Councils: Alabama Panhellenic Association (APA), Interfraternity Council (IFC), National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) and the United Greek Council (UGC).
The Office of Greek Affairs provides active oversight of chapter events, serves as a liaison between faculty, alumni advisors, national offices, and parents, develops values-based leadership development programming, provides training in areas such as chapter operations, risk management, health and safety and membership recruitment, monitors the academic performance of fraternity and sorority members, and recognizes the positive achievements and contributions of community members.
