Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs

Winthrop University is committed to the support, safety and prosperity of all fraternal organizations. Below are the requirements for intake/recruitment and new member education for all chapters recognized by the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Affairs (OFSA) at Winthrop University. OFSA maintains these polices and will publish updates as appropriate. Recruitment/Intake and New Member Education is the prescribed process that students participate in; in conjunction with the respective organizations National Office, local chapter, and Winthrop University; to gain membership into a fraternal organization. These membership processes must be consistent with federal and state law, Winthrop University policies, and National Organizations standards. 

Chapter Members, Chapter Advisors, and the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs will work together to ensure a successful and positive experience for all involved. In order for OFSA to assist chapters with the recruitment/intake and new member education and avoid potential problems, chapters must adhere to the following requirements outlined in the Membership Policy linked below if they are to conduct recruitment/intake and new member education at Winthrop University. Below you will see two sections with the guidelines, forms, and resources for CPC/IFC and NPHC organizations below.
