About Fraternities and Sororities

Building on a foundation of strong and relevant values, fraternities and sororities have experienced tremendous growth and improvement in the areas of community and philanthropic service, academic achievement, leadership development and character. In recent years, we have seen members of fraternities and sororities contribute endless hours of their time to benefit the local community as well as national campaigns.

Fraternities and Sororities at UNCW stress academics as a high priority and establish academic incentive programs and financial rewards within their membership for outstanding achievements. Each chapter must maintain an overall average of at least a 2.5 to be in good standing with the university.

At UNCW, we believe in fostering a comprehensive educational environment for our students. The fraternity and sorority community prides itself on self-governance and as such provides many avenues for leadership within each organization on campus. Members oversee their own financial accounting, facilities maintenance, community and public relations, membership recruitment and development and social programming. Fraternity and sorority members also participate in leadership retreats and seminars as well as educational programs involving topics such as diversity, academic success, effective communication, and alcohol and drug awareness.
