About FSL

The Office of the Dean of Students/ Fraternity & Sorority Life was founded in 2001 by an initiative of the Board of Visitors to educate and support our students in recognized chapters as they shape organizations promoting principles of scholarship, leadership, service, diversity, and honor. We are committed to strengthening student self-governance and leadership on the individual chapter and governing council levels. Our office team also serves as the University liaison to alumnae, alumni and chapter headquarters' staff.
