Greek Excellence Program

The Purpose of the Greek Excellence Program is to intentionally integrate the core principles of fraternity/sorority affiliation with the actions and behaviors of members and to promote the overall advancement of UMSL’s undergraduate fraternity and sorority community. This program is intended to create a better understanding of what each chapter is doing well, and to explore areas where chapters may need assistance. The Greek Excellence Program is critical to the longevity and livelihood of the entire UMSL Fraternity & Sorority LIfe Community.

STL Coalition

Many of the NPHC chapters in the St. Louis area are "city-wide," meaning students from several St. Louis colleges and universities are able to hold membership. To help support these groups, the STL Coalition was created.

The STL Coalition was formed to streamline processes and better support the St. Louis City-Wide National Panhellenic Council (NPHC) chapters. Charters for these city-wide chapters can include up to thirteen schools with varying levels of support and access to resources. Member campuses of the Coalition meet on a regular basis to stay updated on campus events and initiatives as well as find identify challenge areas for the city-wide chapters. Current, active members of the Coalition include:

  • Lindenwood University, St. Charles
  • Harris Stowe State University (HSSU)
  • Saint Louis University (SLU)
  • Washington University in St. Louis (Wash U)
  • University of Missouri - St. Louis (UMSL)

 

Chapter Accountability for STL City-Wide Chapters

While the STL Coalition works to support the city-wide chapters, the coalition also is utilized in chapter accountability. All Coalition campuses will hold a unified front with sanctions and chapter accountability. Failure for a chapter to comply with one campus’ policies or processes may result in repercussions that apply across all Coalition campuses. If a chapter is "not in good standing" with one campus, that carries across all STL Coalition campuses. 

STL Coalition Requirements

Advisor Meetings
Advisor meetings are held at least once per year to update advisors and chapters on Coalition initiatives and expectations. Coalition members take turns hosting these meetings on their respective campuses, but all Coalition representatives are expected to attend. Ideally, meetings are held twice per year with at least one meeting involving the student leadership of each chapter and campus councils (if applicable).

Gateway Greek Leadership Summit (GGLS)
GGLS is an opportunity to come together as members of the Undergraduate St. Louis NPHC community to unify and build relationships, define your personal development while empowering the next generation of student leaders.

Typically hosted in October, the Coalition campuses combine efforts, resources, and funding to make this event happen. The purpose of this event was to create a leadership program specifically geared toward active, undergraduate NPHC members in St. Louis, which did not previously exist. All chapters are required to have at least 80% attendance, though all members are encouraged to attend. Members are asked to wear their letters and show their organizational pride. Curriculum includes:
  • Leadership style workshop
  • Programming best practices
  • Vision building
  • Leaving a legacy
