The Greek Accreditation program at San Diego State University was implemented at the beginning of Fall 2012. Since then, the program has evolved to better assist chapters, councils and the entire Greek community in an effort to tell our story.
We believe the experiences members will have participating in Greek Accreditation will develop a variety of different skills and broaden their knowledge - ultimately giving them a more well-rounded Greek experience while at SDSU!
During summer 2015, the program was reviewed and revised to include additional categories, streamline the organization of the program and improve the process for documentation.
Greek Accreditation focuses on eight key areas of Greek Life which we espouse as our Greek community's values! Efforts and experiences are all directly aligned with the following areas:
|Academic Achievement || Community Wellness|
|Alumni & Family Relations || Diversity Education & Inclusion |
|Chapter Management || Leadership Education & Development |
|Community Relations || Philanthropy & Service |
Highlights & Trends
All chapters are expected to participate in Greek Accreditation which is evaluated at the end of each fall and spring semester. To fully understand the scope and context of the program highlights and trends below, please review the introduction.
Chapter Accreditation Chairs
Greek Life recommends designating at least 2 individual chapter members to be in charge of Greek Accreditation. If you need access to your chapter's Greek Accreditation Google Drive folder (which is where you will store documentation), please submit the Accreditation Contact Information form. The form may be found on the Forms webpage.
It is highly recommended that chapter accreditation chairs learn about the program, documentation, best practices, and more by attending an Information Session! Details are at left on this webpage. NOTE: Attendance to at least 1 Information Session is required if the chapter is Not Accredited.
Efforts & Experiences
All chapters in the Greek community participate in Greek Accreditation to varying degrees! Chapters are expected to meet Accredited status, however, some chapters may be in "Achieving" or even "Excelling"!
Chapters should appropriately challenge themselves! The updated Greek Accreditation Overview ocument outlines what efforts and experiences it takes to reach these levels:
- Goal: Accredited
- Goal: Achieving
- Goal: Excelling
Each effort and experience has proper documentation that must be submitted or compiled in order for the chapter to earn credit. Review the Greek Accreditation Documentation Guidelines for an overview. Documentation cooresponding to each effort and experience will be outlined on the 3 documents in the section above, Efforts & Experiences. The following are templates that are required to be utilized for proper documentation, as applicable.
