Your Growth is Our Growth

The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life is committed to the development and growth of our fraternity and sorority chapters and it’s members.

Consistent development of our members is crucial to the success of our chapters. Strong leadership among our chapter leaders contributes to not only a successful FSL community but University of Dayton community as well. Chapters are required to attend specific leadership programs offered by the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life.

Fraternity and Sorority Leaders

Spring 2019 Leaders Retreat - Lunch with President Dr. Spina and wife Karen

Our Programs

In an effort to create a cohesive community, it’s important to bring our leaders together and educate them while supporting their vision for their organizations and community. The OFSL hosts the Fall and Spring Fraternity & Sorority Leaders Retreat (FSLR) each semester. Chapter and Council Presidents as well as additional Executive Board members attend the retreat and participate in a weekend dedicated on building collaboration and growth. In years past we have held the Fall Leaders Retreat at Higher Ground Conference Center in Indiana and the Spring Leaders Retreat at the Dayton Art Institute with lunch at President Spina’s Home.

We believe in being a lifelong learner both inside and outside of the classroom. The OFSL offers a Flight Plan that provides leadership, communication, and conflict management skills as well as time management, network building opportunities, and more.

The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life offers  UDI 208: An Exploration of Leadership in Fraternities and Sororities during the Fall semester. This two-credit, interaction-based class is designed as an introductory leadership development course that examines leadership within the content of fraternity and sorority life. The course is open to any fraternity or sorority member. One of the goals of the course is to allow students to build relationships across chapters and councils, all while reflecting on what makes the fraternal experience unique. By participating in the course, students will understand the history of Greek-letter organizations and their role on a 21st century college campus and develop and gain applicable skills to create positive change within the fraternity and sorority community.
