The Greek Life Task Force is officially charged on Tuesday, June 4, 2013 with conducting a comprehensive review of the Babson College Greek Life system and offering a report and recommendations to President-Elect Kerry Healey, Vice Provost Dennis Hanno, Vice President Betsy Newman and Dean Shannon Finning by no later than Friday, October 22, 2013. The report and recommendations should respond to the following guiding questions:
What are the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to our Greek community?
Based on this analysis, what should be the role of Greek Life on campus?
How should the Greek community align with the mission of the College?
How should participation in Greek Life enhance the student experience at Babson College?
What is the vision for the Greek community?
What does Greek Life membership mean for our students? Our alumni?
What formal structures should exist for risk identification and reduction in each of the three governing councils with specific focus on new member education and social responsibility?
What should the support systems for Greek Life look like?
The Task Force will be meeting on a regular basis through October. Opportunities will be provided for members of the community to share their experience and input throughout the process. All updates and opportunities for the community will be posted to this website.
About Greek Life at Babson
Joining a fraternity or sorority is a lifetime commitment.
Members of these organizations share bonds of friendship, leadership, and the pursuit of academic excellence that last well beyond the college experience. Each fraternity and sorority has its own unique values and traditions, and we encourage you to learn more about each chapter to find the best fit for you.
Explore all of your options and discuss with those close to you the possibility of involvement in a Greek organization. You may even want to visit with chapter members or alumni to get an idea of what Greek Life at Babson College entails. To join a Greek organization at Babson, you must participate in a formal recruitment process. This experience is meant to facilitate a mutual selection between the potential new member and the chapter while protecting all participants’ privacy and providing guidance throughout the decision making process. During this time, potential new members have the opportunity to meet with all the chapters on campus in order to make an informed decision about which chapter they would like to join.
The Greek governing councils, chapter presidents, current members, and advisers are excited about your interest in our community and are always available to answer any questions you might have.
