Alumni & Advisors

Alumni

Joining a fraternity or sorority is a lifelong membership that does not end after graduation. Whether you graduate from the University of Cincinnati, are a member of one of our organizations from another institution that now lives in Cincinnati, or even a recent graduate new to the alumni world there are many opportunities for you to remain involved or get involved! These include serving as a chapter advisor, house corporation member, engaging with various alumni chapters in the area, or serving as a volunter with your inter/national headquarters.

The University of Cincinnati also has a unique group of dedicated alumni called the Greek Affairs Alumni Council, which supports the current UC fraternity & sorority community, the FSL office, and chapter advisors. Fore information about how you can get involved, please email the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life at greeklife@uc.edu

Greek Affairs Alumni Council

The Greek Affairs Alumni Council (GAAC) supports the undergraduate fraternity and sorority community, as well as chapter advisors. The council consists of fraternity and sorority alumni (some UC alums and some not) who are committed to the Fraternity and Sorority Life experience.

Each fall, the GAAC hosts a reception with the University President. The GAAC is a forum for chapter advisor discussion, sharing of best practices, connecting with other alumni and undergraduates, and undertakes volunteer fundraising for the community.

The GAAC also recognizes alumni with the William R. Nester Award and Outstanding Young Greek Alumni Award annually.

The Greek Affairs Education Fund (GAEF) provides funding for fraternity and sorority education programs and initiatives. It is administered through the Greek Affairs Alumni Council and UC Foundation.

Advisors

Advisors serve a critical role in promoting success of fraternities and sororities at UC. Chapters with consistent alumni support and involvement tend to be some of the highest achieving chapters. The primary role of a chapter advisor is to guide, advise, and support the chapter while acting as a volunteer of the inter/national organization as well as communicating regularly with the Fraternity & Sorority Life Office. The FSL office holds advisor training at least once a semester as well as additional engagement opportunities each academic year. If you are interested in serving as an advisor to any of our chapters, please contact the Fraternity & Sorority Life Office at greeklife@uc.edu
