Sorority and Fraternity Life Task Force

In November 2018, the University of Kansas created the Sorority and Fraternity Life Task Force to evaluate sorority and fraternity life at KU, explore best practices related to policy and programming, and submit recommendations on how Greek life can be enhanced. The goal is to ensure that a strong sorority and fraternity system continues to be a valuable part of the student experience at KU. The 27-member task force comprises students, parents, alumni, housing corporation representatives, advisors, university administrators and staff, whose diverse perspectives are essential to this process. The task force is chaired by KU alumnus Mike Michaelis.

The task force completed its work and submitted its recommendations to Chancellor Girod in fall 2019. On January 10, 2020, Chancellor Girod shared the recommendations with the KU community and applauded the task force for its work during the past year.

Chancellor's Messages

"For more than a century, the sorority and fraternity community has been an important part of the student experience for many Jayhawks. While we can be proud of this history, it is crucial that our sorority and fraternity community is prepared to address today’s challenges and opportunities. We must commit to raising our standards for health, wellness and self-governance and seek new ways to meet the expectations we have for our community. We must strive to set a new standard of excellence by providing university support, community leadership, and an outstanding experience for all chapters and members."

— Chancellor Douglas A. Girod
