The Office of Greek Life advocates for meaningful student engagement. We seek to be partners in providing a holistic fraternity and sorority experience rooted in learning, connection, and development that will equip our students for success at Vanderbilt and beyond.
The overall percentage of undergraduate students that are members of Greek organizations was ~20% in 2019-2020. Overall membership has stayed between 20% – 46% since 2000.
High performance in the classroom continues to be an area of strength for the Greek community. You can access our community academic grade reports here.
Sorority and fraternity members consistently give back to the Nashville and broader global community through community service and philanthropic work. Chapter philanthropic work is included on each chapter page under “Meet the Greeks.”
The Greek Inclusivity Alliance
The Greek Inclusivity Alliance (GIA) is a group of fraternity and sorority members from our governing councils committed to the values of equity and inclusion within and outside of the Greek community. Members of the group are working to build a more culturally competent Greek community where members feel accepted and celebrated for who they truly are. Members of the Alliance are seeking to build bridges outside of the Greek community through active engagement and genuine support of programming and initiatives.
This program evolved from the IFC Inclusivity Agreement created in 2014 and the Panhellenic Diversity & Inclusion Task Force in 2016.
Come to Me Campaign
The Come to Me Campaign was started by a Greek leader in Fall 2016 to promote mental health awareness and education across the Vanderbilt community. More information about Come to Me can be found here.
