Fraternity & Sorority Life Signature Programs
United in the values of family, academics, service and leadership, fraternities and sororities build leaders for a better world. Make friends, make a difference, and make memories! At the heart of Student Involvement’s support for the fraternity and sorority community are signature programs that support the aforementioned values.
SJSU is home to a vibrant and diverse fraternity and sorority community. Members, leaders and chapters as a whole accomplish many things during the course of an academic year. Every year, the community and staff of Student Involvement come together to celebrate the contributions of the fraternity and sorority community. Program, chapter, individual member and leader awards are given at the annual Fraternal Values Awards in mid-May.
Fraternal Values Summit
Strengthening the fraternity and sorority community, this intensive three day retreat provides student leaders with the knowledge and tools to effectively lead change, while also uniting the community through understanding and acknowledgement of shared values and ideals. Attendees include Presidents and New Member Educators for each chapter, as well as Council Presidents and other select leaders.
Greek Active Personal Development (GREAT) Workshops
The engagement of students in learning and personal development is an integral focus of the University, and GREAT was created to achieve the same end. Chapters of the SJSU fraternity and sorority community use the GREAT program series to better prepare members for life and leadership both in and beyond college.

New Member Experience
The New Member Experiences (NME) a tradition that serves to introduce new members to the foundations of fraternal life and to equip them with the knowledge and connections they need to be successful, proud, and well prepared for the experience of a lifetime. As such, participants will learn about the history of the fraternal movement, our common values, strategies for success as a new member, and the ability to begin bonding with the other members of the new member classes.
