Policies, Procedures, and Structure


Belonging to a Greek organization is unlike membership in any other campus organization. Membership in most student organizations lasts only throughout a student’s enrollment at the institution, while Greek membership is a lifelong commitment made by the student. Members of Greek organizations represent the finest quality of individuals based upon scholarship, leadership, service and high moral and ethical standards. Fraternities and sororities at Cumberland University are expected to support and ensure general cooperation between chapters and the University.

 

By emphasizing the development of their members as concerned participants in their chapter and the Cumberland community, the fraternities and sororities support the ideals of loyalty, both to the University and the fraternity/sorority, and responsible citizenship. Greek organizations are expected to share in the academic mission of Cumberland University, to uphold the Cumberland Creed at all times, and be a positive contributor to the Cumberland community as well as the Lebanon and Middle Tennessee community as a whole. Membership in a Greek organization provides mutual benefits to the University and members but with that comes the responsibility of such membership. It is with this philosophy in mind that the following standards and guidelines are established to guide the Cumberland Greek Community in preserving Cumberland’s proud heritage of academic excellence and Greek involvement.
