Policies and Procedures, and Accreditation

Chico State fraternities and sororities prioritize the safety of all membership and students. Chapters are expected to follow all state and local laws and university policies when planning any type of event. Chapters should also comply with all (inter)national organization policies and FIPG Risk Management Policy (the official risk management guidelines for the Chico State Greek organizations). 

At Chico State, our recognized fraternities and sororities are centered around five core values known as The Pillars of Distinction. These five standards are the foundations for recognizing achievements and encouraging excellence within our Greek community at CSU, Chico.  Greek life staff uses the pillars as the basis for programming efforts, student development, and Greek community standards.
