The Association has several documents that outline our values, goals, policies, and procedures. You can access these guiding documents by clicking on the links below.
It is the position of the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors that the proper terminology for all official business and correspondence of the Association will include "Fraternity/Sorority" and not "Greek." The rationale are as follows:
- Using the term "Greek" ignores the fact that not all fraternities and sororities are Greek-letter organizations;
- The word "Greek" is a slang term and is not meant to delineate those from the country of Greece;
- We should be consistent in our message, and as our own association’s name states, we are the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors.
We strongly encourage our members and members of the higher education community to make a concerted effort to adopt this same philosophy and avoid using the term "Greek" when referencing those involved in the fraternity/sorority movement.
