Fraternity and Sorority Affairs

Mission and Values

"To foster the learning and development of students who affiliate with the 31 social fraternities and sororities through leadership development, academic achievement, philanthropic endeavors, and community involvement."

The Motto

The motto of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs (FSA) is "Building a community of lifelong leaders". From recruitment to graduation, we strive to instill the philosophy that high expectations are the standard. Our office focuses on five Pillars of Distinction: Leadership, Scholarship, Service, Community, and Integrity. These pillars closely align with the values of Student Affairs: Diversity, Excellence, Growth, Integrity, Leadership, and Service.

Social Greek-Lettered organizations are predicated upon integrating students to campus life academically and socially through civic engagement. While these organizations are called "social fraternities and sororities," we believe the social aspect is preparing men and women to become contributing and exceptional members of society.


Fraternity and Sorority Affairs holds each organization accountable to best practices for risk management, member safety, scholastic achievement, and leadership development. Throughout the academic year, the three councils at California State University, Chico, in partnership with our office, host a number of programs that focus on personal and organizational growth. These programs range from campus and community recruitment, induction, developmental workshops, leadership opportunities, and career preparation.
