Fraternity and Sorority Affairs
New Roster Deadlines For Spring
The new deadline to update your chapter roster is May 1st. This deadline is to make any last minute changes to the roster due to a change in someone's membership status. We are able to extend this final deadline because grade release cards are now due March 1st for processing.
Fraternity & Sorority Affairs is proud to team up with the Illinois Leadership Center to facilitate the Imprint leadership program on Sunday, April 17th, 2016.
This event provides the unique opportunity to network with Illinois Greek alumni and develop leadership skills. This is the first time this program has been offered exclusively to Fraternity & Sorority members and will provide the chance to discuss leadership issues specific to the Greek community.
Imprint is one of five i-Programs offered through the university; this program focuses on teaching the art of transitional leadership– how to manage personal and professional transitions, how to lead in new environments, how to create a personal brand and build a network. This program will provide a unique opportunity to learn from a team of experienced Illinois alumni who are attending this event as Alumni Coaches.

It is an expectation of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs that if your organization has a Certified Housing Unit on campus, that at least one member participates in Fire Factor during the calendar year (Academies are offered once per year). Attention IFC Chapters, if your chapter did not participate in the Fall 2015 Academy, then you must participate in the Spring 2016 Academy to earn IGI points.

Time to begin thinking about re-registering your organization. Please note that EVERYONE will need to re-register their RSO beginning April 1st and ending by NOON on September 30th no matter when you registered your org. This means that if you want to continue to conduct business on University property and be recognized through the Office of Registered Organizations then you will need to register your RSO. Don’t get left out!
While we are discussing registration, please be aware that QUAD DAY registration begins on the same day! APRIL 1st. Keep in mind that you will NOT have to be registered for the 2016-2017 year prior to registering for Quad Day. The end date is August 9th, but please note that spaces may fill up before the close date of August 9th

ICARE is a 90-minute bystander intervention workshop offered to established groups and organizations on campus. In this highly interactive workshop, students will dialogue with peers in their organization about consent and sexually disrespectful behavior, understand what helps people intervene in sexually disrespectful situations, set a group norm in which sexually disrespectful behavior is recognized as a problem and active bystander behavior is promoted, and learn a variety of intervention skills. The workshop is also highly customizable and is built specifically for group members to examine their values and how they can work together to end sexual violence.
If your group or organization would like to request an ICARE workshop, please fill out the following form: http://goo.gl/forms/jPnegDeoGG. The ICARE coordinator will get in contact with you to set up a workshop.
