Fraternity & Sorority Life

Advisory Team Support

F&M requires fraternities and sororities to have Chapter Advisors & Faculty/Campus Advisors.

F&M expects that advisors will take an active role in the organization. The nature and style of that role is left to the determination of the organization and its advisor. The role of the Chapter Advisor is to guide, advise, and support the chapter and its officers and monitor their progress. A chapter may choose to have one Chapter Advisor or a team of advisors fulfill the responsibilities listed below.

The Chapter Advisor needs to be willing to devote significant time to the chapter, skilled in organizational and leadership development, and proficient in their inter/national organization's policies and their interpretation. It is through committed alumni/ae support that chapters achieve their greatest success.
