All Greek organizations must maintain membership in the Cumberland University Greek Council. Female organizations that are members of the National Panhellenic Conference must also maintain membership in the Cumberland University Panhellenic Council. Panhellenic chapters should refer to the Panhellenic Unanimous Agreements for additional regulations.
The Greek Council is the deliberative and legislative body of Cumberlands Greek system, meaning that concerns related to Greek Life, in general, at the University should be brought to this organization and discussed with its representatives. The Council may discuss and express its views about any matter affecting the Universitys Greek System. The Greek Council is the appropriate forum for the discussion and recommendation by Greek Organizations about any University policies or practices affecting fraternities and sororities at CU.
Council recommendations shall be forwarded to the Director of Greek Affairs for approval, implementation, or rejection. If the Director of Greek Affairs rejects an item, the Council may appeal the denouncement to the Assistant VP and Dean of Students and they may ultimately appeal to the University President. The Greek Council will be composed of the following members:
The President of each Greek organization|
The Vice-President of each Greek organization|
The Director of Greek Affairs|
And, if needed, the Assistant VP and Dean of Students|
Both the President and Vice-President of each chapter can appoint a replacement delegate to the Council if he/she is not able to attend, but no more than two (2) members of each chapter should be present at each meeting. During balloting/voting for recommendations, each chapter shall have only a single vote. All members of the Council are allowed a voice in discussions. The Council will meet at least monthly to discuss Greek standards and behavior and to organize events that promote positive Greek relations. Other meetings may be organized as deemed necessary by the Director of Greek Affairs or other University officials.
