The Chapter Assessment Program (CAP) is an assessment tool that has been implemented in the Fraternity and Sorority community at Towson University*. The assessment examines each organization's involvement and performance in four areas including academics, chapter management, member development and community involvement.
At the conclusion of every semester, each organization's CAP portfolio is graded based on a point system. Based on total points, chapters are awarded a Gold, Silver, Bronze, Satisfactory, or Needs Improvement status. Gold cups for top CAP scores for each semester will be given at the annual Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life Awards Ceremony for both a Fraternity and a Sorority. Any chapter awarded Gold “status” will also be eligible for the President's Cup Award (named the Dr. Teresa L. Hall Award for Chapter Excellence) for the previous calendar year. The President’s Cup Award will be selected by a committee run by the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life. Any chapter currently holding a conduct sanction from the Office of Student Conduct and Civility Education will not be eligible for awards. However, individual members from those chapters may be eligible.
