Sorority and Fraternity Life
Since 1873, the social sorority and fraternity organizations have grown to become a vital part of the University of Kansas history and tradition. Today, the sorority and fraternity community represents 43 organizations with more than 4,500 students committed to five core values: Academic Achievement, Civic & Community Engagement, Diversity & Inclusivity, Personal & Professional Development and Holistic Wellness. The Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life (SFL) is the administrative unit of the University that provides support and advocacy for these organizations. The organizations are members of four different governing councils; the Interfraternity Council (IFC), the Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), and the Panhellenic Association (PHA).
