Leadership Initiatives

The Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life provides multiple leadership training opportunities throughout the year for members of the sorority and fraternity community. 

The Greek Accreditation & Standards Program (GSAP) is an assessment tool that has been implemented in the Sorority and Fraternity community at Loyola University Chicago. The assessment examines each organization's involvement and performance in four areas including:

  • Academics
  • Chapter management
  • Member development
  • Community involvement

At the conclusion of every semester, each organization's GSAP portfolio is graded based on a point system. Based on total points, chapters are awarded a Gold, Silver, Bronze, or Needs Improvement status. Gold cups for top GSAP scores for each semester will be given at the annual Weekend of Execellence Awards Ceremony for both a Fraternity and a Sorority.

Each chapter will have to do a 15 minute presentation of the initiatives they participated in over the course of the semester. Presentations are open to the public.

Sorority & Fraternity 101 is held once every semester program for new members of the fraternity and sorority community. The purpose of this program is to introduce new members to the wider LUC Sorority & Fraternity Life community and educate them on the policies and procedures of the University. Additionally, these new members are also offered programming on sexual assault prevention, hazing prevention, diversity and cultural awareness, and bystander intervention training.

Hazing Prevention Week is an opportunity for Loyola University Chicago and its affiliate organizations and individuals to raise awareness about the problem, educate others, and promote the prevention of hazing. This week typically occurs during the third week of September in conjunction with National Hazing Prevention Week.

What is the SFL Emerging Leaders Institute (ELI)?

The Sorority & Fraternity Life’s Emerging Leadership Institute (ELI) is a leadership development program that provides a space for students who are new to the Sorority & Fraternity Life community at Loyola University Chicago to have in depth conversations about the foundations of values-based leadership and positive social change. SFL’s Emerging Leadership Institute uses a cohort-based model to develop community among participants by engaging with one another eight times throughout the spring semester for both sessions and program implementation. By participating in the program students will have the opportunity to engage in experiential leadership activities, group discussions, and reflect on their own leadership skills and style.

Who is an Emerging Greek Leader?

  • Any member of the Sorority & Fraternity Life community who wishes to explore their personal philosophy of leadership
  • Sorority & Fraternity Life members wanting to develop skills to more effectively work in teams and/or organizations
  • Sorority & Fraternity Life members wanting to gain knowledge and tools to aid their ability to create positive social change on campus and in the global community.

Learning Outcomes:

As a result of participating in the SFL's Emerging Leaders Institute, students will be able to:

  • Describe the knowledge and skills they have gained from the Social Change Model of Leadership
  • Develop and articulate a higher level of self-efficacy in their ability to engage in opportunities for leadership development
  • Articulate what they have learned about themselves, others, and systems that contribute to the understanding of self and others identities
