Founded on the principle of Brotherhood and Sisterhood, these nationally-affiliated organizations stress scholarship, leadership, and service through well-balanced programming and campus traditions such as Monthly Service Days, Holiday Family Baskets and Fall Neophyte (new member) Step Show. The diverse programs presented by these organizations offer members and the campus at-large opportunities for learning, development, engagement and some fun and enjoyment.
These organizations are chartered as university chapters and the university’s policies and guidelines for chartered student organizations supersede those of the nationally-recognized organization.
Each fall the Pan-Hellenic council (comprised of representatives of all eight member organizations) presents a forum on Greek Life and the Anti-Hazing Policy. Greek Life at Xavier is coordinated by the Vice President of Student Services.
