On-Campus Advisors


Fraternities and sororities must register annually with the Office of Student Life. The University also requires that each chapter must register a full-time Cumberland University faculty or staff member as their on-campus advisor. Campus advisors do not have to be initiated members of a Greek fraternity/sorority. This advisor serves as a liaison between the chapter and the University in an official capacity in addition to the Director of Greek Affairs.

 

The process also requires each Greek organization to file a list of members, officers, and a current edition of the chapter’s by-laws. The University does not and will not require a copy of esoteric documents such as the Ritual, Constitution, or other fraternal materials published for the exclusive use of its members. The Director of Greek Affairs will be, along with the faculty/staff advisor, one of the University’s administrative advisors to the respective Greek organization. The Director of Greek Affairs will also serve as the University liaison to each fraternity or sorority’s international or national headquarters.

 

The Director of Greek Affairs, along with the Dean of Students, will conduct a yearly review of each chapter based on objectives outlined in the Yearly Chapter Review Guidelines. The review will take place in the spring semester of each academic year.
