  • Fraternity & Sorority Excellence Awards are an opportunity to recognize and encourage excellence in the fraternal community here at the University of Mississippi. Each fraternity and sorority is required to submit a Core Values award application so that all of the many accomplishments of our chapters can be acknowledged. The application process and award ceremony are designed to applaud specific areas of achievement and encourage growth in lacking areas.

    The chapter awards are reflective of the five Core Values of Fraternity & Sorority Life. One Core Value award will be given to a chapter in each of the three councils (Interfraternity, Panhellenic, and National Pan-Hellenic) that demonstrates the most significant effort to embody each specific Core Value. The winning chapter will have exceptional adherence to, or transcendence of, the criteria delineated by the University of Mississippi Fraternity & Sorority Life community.

    A detailed rubric of both the Core Value Awards & Individual Awards can be found here.

    Awards were presented at our Fraternity & Sorority Excellence Awards ceremony, on April 14th, 2021 at 6:30 pm.
