We track grades and numbers of students active in fraternities and sororities at Mizzou, year by year. See the statistics here.

Community Conduct History

In the interest of transparency, Fraternity & Sorority Life tracks the learning experiences of local chapters and — when relevant — the measures taken to ensure that the community remains focused on the values of scholarship, leadership, service and brotherhood/sisterhood. Explore our community conduct history.

Scorecards

The Greek Chapter Scorecard provides key measures for each chapter within the Interfraternity Council, Multicultural Greek Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council and Panhellenic Association. The data for the reports are gathered from each chapter and council. Click here to access the latest scorecards.

Mizzou is committed to the development of individual Greek students, chapters and the community. To ensure quality living and learning environments for members, Mizzou fraternities and sororities maintain accreditation with the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life.

Individual members contribute to their chapters’ success in fulfilling their missions through mentorship, advocacy and collaborating with the university and Columbia communities, as well as national Greek organizations.

FSL Accreditation

Member tracks

The member tracks portion of FSL accreditation is designed to engage fraternity and sorority members in existing experiences provided on Mizzou’s campus. Each member will be expected to complete a specific number of experiences each of the five tracks listed below. For a chapter to receive credit in a specific track, 70 percent of the chapter’s membership must complete the required number of experiences listed. The member tracks portion shall count toward 50 percent of chapter’s overall completion of FSL accreditation. A list of events sponsored by university departments and recognized student organizations that have been approved for this program will be made available to all fraternity and sorority members on a weekly basis during the fall and spring semesters. This list will be updated as new events are submitted and approved.

Accreditation Status

The University of Missouri’s Fraternity & Sorority Chapter Accreditation Program is designed to assess the completion of the minimum expectations for chapter success as outlined by the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life. Chapters will receive one of the following designations based on their accreditation completion percentage from the previous academic year: Accredited with Distinction (90-100 percent), Accredited (70-89 percent), or Non-accredited (0-69 percent).

Chapters at the non-accredited level will be required to meet periodically with a Review Board or Fraternity & Sorority Life staff members to review the previous year’s completion status and plan for the next academic year. Being a non-accredited chapter does not necessarily restrict organization activities.
