The Cumberland University Greek System must have a framework to measure success. The minimum standards set forth by the Greek Rules and Regulations contained in the Cumberland University Student Handbook are the standards by which each chapter is judged. Each Chapter will be held accountable for meeting or exceeding these expectations. Those chapters who exceed these expectations will be recognized, praised and rewarded for their actions. Any chapter found to be below expectations will be given the opportunity to improve in the next calendar year before sanctions are applied. If a Chapter does not improve, it risks restrictions imposed by the Cumberland University Director of Greek Affairs, and/or Administration, which can result in loss of recognition by Cumberland University.
Each Greek organization will be required to submit a Greek Organization Report by April 1 of each year. Chapters will be evaluated from April 1 to March 31. While a self report, Greek organizations are expected to be honest in their evaluations of themselves.
In addition to the officers, the organization advisor(s) should be used as a source for completion. The Director of Greek Affairs, Assistant VP and Dean of Students and an at-large faculty member will serve as the Review Panel. Only these individuals, along with the Chapter president and chapter advisor will have access to the report, review or recommendations. Cumberland University will not publish, in any way, the findings of the Review Panel, nor will any other chapter be notified of any other chapters review results. The findings of the Panel will be used to assist chapters that are found to be deficient in areas to correct the problem areas and to fulfill the standards of the Cumberland Greek System.
The outline of the report can be found on the Cumberland University website or in the Director of Greek Affairs Office.
