Fraternity & Sorority Life (“FSL” or Greek Life) is a community of creative, ethical, and socially responsible leaders dedicated to advancing personal growth, social connections, philanthropy, and academic success at Bentley University. United by our values, chapters and councils enhance the student experience and prepare future business leaders for success. FSL at Bentley comprises about 20 percent of undergraduate students.
Fraternity and sorority life is recognized and sanctioned by Bentley. As such, it’s governed by four distinct groups:
The Presidents Council is the primary advisory, advocacy and strategic planning organization for Fraternity & Sorority Life community. It brings together chapter presidents, council presidents, and staff to establish and work toward community-wide goals.
The Interfraternity Council is the umbrella organization for recognized on-campus fraternities. It consists of one representative from each chapter and an executive board of annually elected officers.
The National Panhellenic Council is the umbrella organization for recognized on-campus sororities. It consists of one representative from each chapter and an executive board of annually elected officers.
The Greek Activities Council promotes communication, collaboration and cohesion within the Fraternity and Sorority Life community. It fosters positive connections across campus through programming and other initiatives.
Bentley sets clear expectations for all of its fraternities and sororities. Learn how the Community Standards Program provides a framework for chapter success.
Due to health and safety guidelines surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Standards Program has been updated for the Fall 2020 semester in order to provide a safe experience for members, while still creating opportunities for meaningful success. The updated Standards Program can be found here.
