Support for Fraternity & Sorority Life
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.

New Member Education & Hazing Prevention
Students who are invited to join a chapter and accept their invitation will participate in a new member education process following recruitment. Chapters, their active members and new members are expected to follow the University’s New Member Education Policy.
Fraternity and sorority members are required to complete hazing prevention training, in addition to signing the University’s anti-hazing agreement. The anti-hazing agreement is based on the University’s hazing policy in the Student Handbook.
Anyone who has concerns about potential hazing occurring within a chapter can report their concern online.
