Greek organizations at LaGrange College are a component of the institution’s total educational program. As such, they are partners with the College in a mutually supportive endeavor. Therefore, Greek organizations share a responsibility for strengthening the total quality of student life. Because of their importance to their own members, Greek Chapters have certain rights and responsibilities within their community. Among their rights are 1) choosing their members; 2) participating as a unit in campus group activities; 3) participating in self-governing activities through the Interfraternity Council and the Panhellenic Council; 4) providing the opportunity for participation in educational experiences.

Among the responsibilities for Greek organizations are as follows: (1) conducting all activities in accordance with regulations and policies of LaGrange College and their general fraternity, including policies on non-discrimination on the basis of race, creed, religion, age, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression, or disability; (2) complying with their charter and by-laws developed in consultation with and approval of their general fraternity; (3) operating their chapter affairs in a business-like manner consistent with their constitution and College policies; and (4) maintaining an atmosphere within their chapter and its activities supportive of high academic standards.

All fraternities and sororities are required to have a faculty or community/alumni adviser. Fraternities and sororities exist at the College only at the invitation of the College. This invitation is formally extended by the President of the College and can be withdrawn if a fraternity or sorority fails to comply

with the College regulations and policies, including but not limited to the policies established by Student Engagement.
