Unrecognized Chapters

Unrecognized chapters are not permitted to use Cornell University's name or image, reserve University spaces, or represent themselves as an official part of the University community. This situation concerns us because we do not have confidence that unrecognized chapters operate with the same diligence to promote student growth and development; provide proactive and preventative measures to foster wellness and safety; nor abide by University guidelines with regard to recruitment, new member education, academic support, and other areas that are vital to the successful management of a chapter. Additionally, unrecognized chapters operate willingly and against institutional policy and therefore lack resources and support provided to other student organizations.The Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life, along with our governing student bodies, and Cornell University neither support nor condone the activities of these unrecognized organizations, or any other groups representing themselves as a social fraternity or sorority. Any individuals contemplating membership in one of these unrecognized organizations should carefully consider this information.
