Fraternity and Sorority Life Excellence Committee

In 2018, 20 strategies to enhance the fraternity and sorority experience on our campuses were developed by the SEC Coalition, consisting of the Vice Presidents for Student Affairs from the Southeastern Conference institutions. From these strategies, the Texas A&M Fraternity and Sorority Life Excellence Committee was created to:

  1. Implement a plan of action that addresses the 20 excellence strategies identified by the SEC Coalition.
  2. Assess the progress and impact that this plan has on the Texas A&M fraternity and sorority community.
  3. Continue to develop next-best-practices that will ensure Aggie Greeks are at the forefront of Greek Excellence.

Four subcommittees have been established to help accomplish this charge:  Finances and Staffing; Law, Policy, and Governance; Education and Training; Communications and Marketing.  Likewise, in 2017-2018, the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life (OFSL) built a strategic plan that addresses a number of the initiatives identified by the Coalition. We believe that the work done by OFSL provides a strong foundation for the Excellence Committee.

Subcommittee membership and OFSL’s strategic plan, along with the 20 SEC initiatives, can be viewed below.
