Fraternity/Sorority Governance Councils
SUNY Plattsburgh works closely with fraternities and sororities to allow these groups to govern themselves and hold each other to commonly agreed upon values and standards.
There are two governance councils — one for fraternities and one for sororities — that develop solutions to community-wide challenges and support the organizations that fall under their governance.
Interfraternity Council (IFC)
Inter-Sorority Association (ISA)
The Inter-Sorority Association (ISA) is the governing and advisory body of the sororities at SUNY Plattsburgh.
There are five fraternity/sorority programming committees that are supervised collectively by the Interfraternity Council and Inter-Sorority Association. They are:
The purpose of the Diversity Committee is to create dialogue about topics of gender, race, class, ability, sexual orientation and other areas of diversity, assist in the identification and mediation of problematic incidents and encourage collaboration between groups on topics of diversity.
The purpose of the Hazing Prevention Committee is to address the issues of hazing in fraternal organizations through initiatives like National Hazing Prevention Week and a partnership with HazingPrevention.Org. This group is also in charge developing a prevention strategy to facilitate conversations and initiatives to combat the hazing culture on campus and to foster positive new member education practices.
The purpose of the Interfraternal Relations Committee is to develop initiatives and convene conversations designed to foster brotherhood and sisterhood among fraternal organizations. The main responsibilities of the committee include, but are not limited to, the coordination of Fall Fiesta and Greek Weekend.
The purpose of the Service Committee is to engage fraternity and sorority members in community service, college service, and philanthropy. The main responsibilities of this committee include, but are not limited to, coordinating A Week to GIVE, Fall Formal and Spring Fling at Meadowbrook Health Care, Faculty Appreciation Day and more.
