Chartering a New Chapter

The fraternity and sorority community at the University of North Texas at Dallas (UNT Dallas) is a growing group of organizations that represent various backgrounds, principles and values. The University of North Texas at Dallas seeks organizations whose ideals are consistent with the University’s mission and values and that are willing to commit the resources necessary to cultivate a strong, sustainable organization. The University of North Texas at Dallas recognizes that fraternities and sororities are a valuable component of the undergraduate experience and the growth of fraternity/sorority life serves to advance the University mission and goals. A collaborative relationship between the university, Greek Life and the organization is necessary to promote a positive experience for all students and to ensure success and sustainability of the chapter. The organization must be affiliated with an inter/national fraternity or sorority.

Student-Driven Requests: Interested students should contact the inter/national office for the fraternity or sorority they would like to bring to campus. Please contact the office of Fraternity & Sorority Life to let us know how we can assist in connecting you with the appropriate official of that organization. The success of an expansion request will be driven by the number of interested students. The fraternity/sorority will usually require a certain number of students to begin chartering. The inter/national office for the organization will be responsible for submitting the official expansion request to the UNT Dallas Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life.

Requests from Fraternity/Sorority Inter/National Offices: The Fraternity & Sorority Life Office at UNT Dallas values the involvement of these organizations in joining our community. Expansion officers are encouraged to contact our office should they be interested om expansion opportunities via email to Rifeta "Fifi" Badic-Grady rifeta.badic@untdallas.edu.
