Since 1872, Michigan State University’s Fraternity and Sorority Community has been a thriving part of campus life. Joining a Fraternity or Sorority brings life long relationships, opportunities for personal and career growth, and a national network of alumni across the globe.


We as the Fraternity & Sorority Life staff send loving thoughts to all in the Fraternity and Sorority Life community here at Michigan State University. Violence and tragedy have struck our campus and community. There are no words we can say that would effectively detail the heartache we are all feeling. We hope you are close to friends and loved ones. The days ahead will be tough, and we will get through them together. The Fraternity and Sorority Life staff will do our absolute best to help you and your chapter access to the resources, support or care you may need.

University officials have been in contact with families and have confirmed that our valued friend/community member Brian Fraser has passed away as a result of their injuries. Please join us in sending your love and support to members of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity and all those who knew and loved Brian. We also ask that you keep Sigma Lambda Gamma International Sorority, Incorporated in your thoughts and prayers as we jointly hope for the speedy recovery of their sorority sister.

Greeks Take the Lead

The Greeks Take the Lead Program is a mandatory workshop series for all fraternity and sorority chapters that are currently registered student organizations (RSOs) or are hoping to become a RSO. The Greeks Take the Lead Program serves as a way to help fraternity and sorority students feel empowered by providing further education on how they can intervene and end sexual violence in their chapters and greater community. All chapter presidents and risk managers (or another leadership member, if your chapter does not have a risk manager) participate in leadership-based interactive training, and all general members are required to choose a workshop focused on a specialized topic.

 The "Greeks Take the Lead" Program serves to:

  • Educate MSU fraternity and sorority members to promote positive social change around gender-based violence in their communities.
  • Shift attitudes, beliefs, behaviors and norms on topics pertaining to gender-based violence against MSU fraternity and sorority student populations in an effort to stregthen the culture of prevention and support in their communities.
  • Build upon primary university-level prevention programming completed by MSU fraternity and sorority members to explore topics in gender-based violence specific to their experiences.
  • Center equity in programmatic efforts so that they are relevant to and reflective of the experiences of various communities and identity groups in MSU fraternity and sorority life.
