Expansion Policy

The University of Cincinnati recognizes that a strong fraternity & sorority community is a constructive element of campus life.

In overseeing the process of orderly expansion, there must be substantial evidence of the ability of the proposed organization to: positively contribute to the UC Fraternity & Sorority Life community; show potential for recruiting, growth and success; and to conduct itself in a manner consistent with state laws, University, Council, and Fraternity & Sorority Life policies and procedures.

Organizations wishing to affiliate with the Interfraternity Council or the College Panhellenic Council must adhere to those councils’ planned expansion process, which is in place to ensure success for organizations seeking to charter a new chapter at the University.

To insure that fraternities and sororities desiring to be registered at UC possess those qualifications deemed necessary for their success and for the continued health of the Fraternity & Sorority Life community, the following standards and procedures shall apply:

The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life would like to recognize those organizations most recently established on our campus:

  • Zeta Tau Alpha (2018)
  • Pi Lambda Phi (2020)
  • Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc. (2020)
  • Sigma Alpha Mu (2021)
