OSU Greek Life Honored at Leadership Conference

This past month, students from Oklahoma State University’s Interfraternity, Multicultural Greek, National Pan-Hellenic and Panhellenic Councils attended the Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values and the National Black Greek Leadership Conference in Indianapolis.

The Interfraternity Council (IFC), which is part of the IFC Division IV, received recognition in six award categories, including Academic Management, Council Management, Leadership & Educational Development, Public Relations, Risk Reduction & Management and Self-Governance & Judicial Affairs. Oklahoma State University’s IFC also won the 2017 Jellison Award, which is presented to the most outstanding council in each IFC Division.

MGC, the Multicultural Greek Council, was also recognized for its achievements in Council Management, Membership Recruitment and Public Relations.

National Pan-Hellenic Council, or NPHC, won outstanding achievement for division I in the Council Management and Self-Governance categories.

Panhellenic Council, a part of the Panhellenic Division III, received recognition in eight award categories, including Academic Achievement, Council Management, Leadership & Educational Development, Membership Recruitment, Public Relations, Philanthropy and Community Service, Risk Reduction and Management, as well as Self-Governance and Judicial Affairs. The Panhellenic Council also received the 2017 Sutherland Award, which is presented to the Panhellenic Council with the highest level of achievement in each Panhellenic Council Division. In addition, the Panhellenic Council was recognized for excellence in social media campaigns for its daily recruitment recap, which allowed parents to stay connected to their students’ experiences during the week while also allowing potential new members to reminisce in the fun of the day.

“Our students work incredibly hard all year round to provide excellent programming and encourage high standards of scholarship, leadership and service,” said Molly Schuneman, Fraternity & Sorority Affairs graduate teaching assistant. “It is so rewarding to see their hard work pay off in such a big way. We truly have amazing fraternity and sorority members at Oklahoma State.”

The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Affairs oversees four councils, including the Panhellenic, Interfraternity, National Pan-Hellenic and Multicultural Greek Council. The OSU Greek community is composed of more than 3,000 students representing 52 diverse men’s and women’s fraternal organizations.
