The University of California, Los Angeles believes that fraternities and sororities can contribute significantly and positively to the quality of the undergraduate experience by providing opportunities for the development of leadership skills, civic involvement, intellectual growth and the bond of impactful lifelong relationships. The University recognizes and affiliates itself with fraternities and sororities through the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life. The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life is responsible for creating and implementing those policies necessary for the growth and development of the fraternal community on campus.
It is the goal of the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life to create and hold clear expectations of recognized fraternities and sororities on campus. Therefore, this Expectations of Recognition document has been created and distributed to communicate those minimum standards of all social fraternities and sororities at UCLA. These expectations are meant to be reviewed and reaffirmed by the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life and each undergraduate chapter every calendar year. When all expectations are upheld, the organization is to be fully recognized as in good standing. When a chapter fails to meet the expectations outlined in this document, it is subject to disciplinary action ranging from educational sanctions to removal of recognition.
COVID-19 Modifications: Given the current state of emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, these expectations have been adjusted to reflect the need for additional information for how the chapter is responding to campus, county, and state guidelines and restrictions. The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life will coordinate with UCLA emergency and health response services to assist the chapter in reviewing their polices and procedures to be aligned with gathering and communal living requirements. Due to the modifications needed to respond to the pandemic, OFSL will require that all chapters resubmit this signed document by September 15, 2020.
