About the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life

The Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life (OSFL) exists to support the sorority and fraternity community at Indiana University. We provide support through advising the Interfraternity Council (IFC), Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), and Panhellenic Association (PHA) council and chapter leaders. OSFL staff also coordinate a variety of programs and events while providing administrative services to the sorority and fraternity community. Most importantly, OSFL staff work to advocate for a safe, fun, and respectful undergraduate fraternal experience at IU Bloomington.

Core Outcomes

The behaviors, skills, and knowledge we want our students and organizations to develop as a result of being a member of our sorority and fraternity community.


Students and organizations will demonstrate the value of working intentionally with others to achieve personal, organizational, and community goals. Relationships are the foundation of all sororities and fraternities. Those relationships extend to brothers/sisters, council officers, University staff, alumni, advisors, house corporations, international/national headquarters and organization staff and volunteers, community stakeholders, and beyond.

Operational Excellence:

Students and organizations will utilize best practices to lead their organizations effectively. Successful organizational operations reflect their organization’s values. Operational excellence allows for individuals and organizations to perform productively using transferable skills such as time management, organization, and attention to detail.

Values-based Leadership:

Students and organizations will hold themselves and others accountable to the Standards of Excellence through values-based leadership. Leaders synthesize their personal and organization values, and ethically employ those values with integrity.


Students and organizations will create a sense of belonging in their chapters, councils, and community. This includes a focus on diversity, inclusion, accessibility, and eliminating systemic barriers to membership. Students and organizations will demonstrate respect and appreciation for individuals of all identities.


Students and organizations will prioritize the health and wellness of all members. They will exhibit a commitment to wellness using IU’s wellness model, which includes eight dimensions: social, physical, emotional, occupational, spiritual, intellectual, environmental, and financial.
