Recognized Greek chapters are expected to uphold all policies and regulations established by the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, Towson University, and the State of Maryland.
All fraternal organizations must have a faculty/staff advisor.
Responsibilities of Faculty Advisor:
- Work with chapters on designing, updating, and administering their academic plan.
- Interpret university policies.
- Serve as judicial advisor in cases of conduct issues.
- Work with students in chapter that are in academic jeopardy.
- CAP support – Assist with programs in the area of their expertise.
All chapters at Towson University are now required to have proof of one million dollars ($1,000,000.00) of social liability insurance. Towson University must be named as the certificate holder on the document.
National offices should send a copy of the insurance with Towson University as the "certificate holder" to:
c/o Ms. Carly Heasley
Director, Fraternity and Sorority Life
University Union 232 C
8000 York Road
Towson, MD 21252
All insurance paperwork must be updated during February of every year.
Students interested in joining a Greek-letter organization must be a fully matriculated (full-time credit load) undergraduate student who possess over a 2.5 cumulative GPA. First-semester freshman and transfer students are exempt from this requirement. No graduate students may participate, as a roster member, with the chapter.
All chapters at TU must have at least five (5) members. If any chapter falls below five members, they will have one year to raise the total to five members. Any chapter that fails to do so will no longer be recognized.
All chapters have “internal” accounts with SGA and will no longer need to bring money to events to pay ECS, Catering, etc.
Money may be deposited on the first floor of the University Union across from the bookstore.
An updated website is extremely vital to the success of any group. A website is part of how perspective students and families, students and staff, and local communities learn about the group and their activities.
