It is great to welcome you to the University of Nebraska – Kearney! Whether you are new to UNK, a current student, or returning alumni, you will find that our Greek community offers a wide range of opportunities to grow as an individual, develop your personal values and character, and progress as a leader.
For over 90 years, fraternities and sororities the University of Nebraska – Kearney have been instrumental in cultivating a dynamic and educational collegiate experience for undergraduate students. Although the Greek community composes only 12% of our student population, members from our chapters are involved in nearly all of UNK's 200 student organizations. During the fall 2013 semester, the All-Greek GPA was 3.22 vs. the UNK All-Campus GPA of 3.06!
Being in a fraternity or sorority is the premier leadership experience that universities can offer a student. Opportunities ranging from chapter management, event planning, accounting/budgeting, and many more are all ways fraternities and sororities provide a unique leadership opportunity to the students of the University of Nebraska – Kearney. Not only are students involved within their Greek organizations, but you will see many of them heavily involved in intercollegiate athletics and other co-curricular, academic, and honor organizations on campus. Greek students consistently hold some of the top leadership positions on campus.
The Office of Greek Affairs provides active oversight and advising of chapter events, serves as a liaison between faculty, alumni advisors, national offices, and parents, develops values-based leadership development programming, provides training in areas such as chapter operations, risk management, health and safety and membership recruitment, monitors the academic performance of fraternity and sorority members, and recognizes the positive achievements and contributions of community members. Please peruse our related links for additional news, recruitment information, and chapter profiles. Finally, as the Assistant Director for Greek Affairs & Student Activities, my favorite role is to assist chapters in achieving their individual goals and help them define personal success.
