Mission of Greek Organizations
Greek Life at Kean University empowers members of Greek-letter Organizations to promote and preserve the ideals of scholarship, service, leadership, campus involvement, and brotherhood/sisterhood. Membership in Greek Organizations promotes personal development and a strong sense of identity with the institution, as well as post-graduate association. Greek chapters enhance the quality of life for students on and off campus by providing a range of opportunities for meaningful individual involvement and growth.
Greek Organizations have a strong commitment to community service. Participation in various campus, community, and philanthropic activities foster the Individual's lifelong commitment to community service.
In the 2002-2003 academic year, the Greek Organization members at Kean participated in a total of 235 service projects. The volunteers worked around 810 hours and raised close to $13,500 in donations.
The Greek Organizations at Kean have demonstrated their commitment to the University and the community time and time again; and if you are a person who believes in community service then a Greek organization is something that might fit into your future plans.
Greek Organizations create an atmosphere that encourages its members to broaden their intellectual horizons and sharpen their academic skills. In addition, Greek Organizations assist their members in the pursuit of scholarship and academic achievements by providing tutorial assistance when needed and rewarding superior achievement.
Outstanding academic performance is recognized through the National Order of Omega. This Honor Society salutes members of the Greek community who are juniors and seniors, have a 2.75 grade point average or higher, and have excelled in campus involvement, fraternity/sorority contributions and community service.
Fraternities and sororities provide opportunities for individuals to learn to respect the rights, values, and beliefs of others. Students from diverse cultures, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds are encouraged to participate in the Greek System. Activities and programs designed to promote the understanding and acceptance of diverse populations are a critical part of the Greek experience. In accordance with the Mission of Kean University, the fraternities and sororities at Kean will offer equal opportunity for the participation of the individual regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, physical handicap, age or sex.
