Academic success is the foundational value of the fraternity and sorority community at UWM. It is the mission of the community to strive for scholastic excellence and to assist all members of the community in attaining their academic goals towards graduation and a successful career.
Each chapter sets academic expectations for current and prospective members that are tracked each semester through the support of Student Involvement. Each chapter also develops an academic plan that guides their programming and initiatives each semester.
Greek Study Space:
The East Wing of the Golda Meir Library has reserved a space for fraternity and sorority members to study on Monday through Thursday from 7pm-11pm. The location of this space is directly behind the circulation desk when you first enter this part of the library. The reserved space is typically used by Supplemental Instruction and comes equipped with whiteboards, which members can use if they bring their own dry erase markers.
We encourage a quiet and safe area for all Greeks, regardless of affiliation, to come together and improve their academics through studying in groups. All members should sign into the Greek Study Space Binder which is located next to the computer on the circulation desk.
New Member Academic Success Sessions:
Each semester, new members of fraternities and sororities are required to attend a session on academic success. The session is designed to explore how new members can achieve academic success while being an involved student leader on campus. Key topics will include:
- Academic expectations of fraternities and sororities
- Time management for busy student
- Healthy study habits
- Setting academic goals
- Connecting to campus resources
This workshop is co-facilitated with Panther Academic Support Services (P.A.S.S), members of Order of Omega National Honor Society and the fraternity and sorority life advisor from Student Involvement.
