About Expectations for Excellence (EE)
The Expectations for Excellence is an initiative at the University of Rochester to create college-centered fraternity and sorority chapters on campus. The program follows a success driven model that encourages the chapters to become a larger part of the campus community rather than exist as insular groups on the periphery of the college. The program encourages co-sponsorship of events with other fraternities, sororities, and non-fraternity/sorority student groups on campus as well as greater interaction with college offices and increased use of college resources.
For the Expectations for Excellence Process, each fraternity/sorority chapter creates a distinctive plan with proposed events and strategies for the calendar year, submitted in February. The chapter is then responsible for completing the goals set forth in the plan, with the support of the FSA staff, Chapter Advocate (a staff or faculty member), and their Alumni Advisor. On December 1st, each fraternity/sorority completes a written Annual Report and formally presents the Annual Report, in person, to the Standards Sub-Committee Review Panel. After the Standards Sub-Committee has reviewed a chapter’s submitted materials and the Annual Report Presentation reviews, the Standards Sub-Committee decides whether or not to accredit a group. Many positive changes have been made in the fraternity and sorority system due to the impact of the Expectations for Excellence.
