Sorority and Fraternity Programs and Events

Good Standing Program

Sorority & Fraternity Life at Texas Woman's University implemented the Good Standing Program to communicate our expectations as well as provide a platform for chapters to track their events and achievements throughout the year. This best practice has been used for establishing Sorority & Fraternity Life community expectations, and requirements from National Organizations and analyzing Good Standing and Minimum Standards programs at various institutions. The Sorority & Fraternity Life Good Standing program is separate from any university conduct process and outcome for individuals or organizations. It also does not replace any requirements from the national organizations’ standards.
