In the Fall of 2010 the fraternity and sorority community was challenged to define what it meant to be Greek at Columbia University. A representative from each Governing Council solicited information from chapters that informed the development of the Statement of Shared Values. This statement was presented to the fraternity and sorority community on December 6, 2010 and signed by all chapter presidents. The original hangs in the Office of Residential Programs-Fraternity & Sorority Life.
Recognizing everything the fraternal bonds have done in influencing and supporting our paths in life we present the State of Shared Values.
Statement of Shared Values
The fraternity and sorority community at Columbia University strives to foster a holistic collegiate experience that will strengthen a commitment to life-long membership and our alma mater.
We believe that through our dedication and promotion of social consciousness we greatly contribute to the creation of a vibrant cultural community that emphasizes diversity, inclusiveness, and mutual respect. We are values based organizations and, through our actions, we embody these ideals and inspire others.
Leadership. Scholarship. Empowerment.
