Membership Intake Policy and Procedures
The Center for Fraternity and Sorority Life (CFSL) at Oregon State University recognizes the importance of the “Membership Intake” process and supports efforts of initiating new members as well as the growth of chapters. As students continue to seek membership in Greek-Lettered Organizations on campus, it is important that the CFSL establish a system of communication with organizations wanting to participate in the intake of new members. This document is meant to educate OSU fraternity and sorority members, their advisors, and aspiring members about the Membership Intake expectations, policies, and procedures of OSU Center for Fraternity and Sorority Life. The goal is to bring structure to OSU’s Membership Intake practice and not to take ownership of each individual chapter’s membership process. This plan is also meant to ensure that chapters are adhering to the OSU hazing policy. If these guidelines and procedures are not followed properly, it will result in actions being taken by OSU as well as contacting the respective chapter’s advisor and inter/national organization/headquarters.
