Our Community

Fraternities and sororities at Miami have developed a deep heritage spanning 190 years filled with tradition, history, success, and pride. This heritage benefits both our fraternity and sorority members and the broader university community. The local founding of five social Greek-letter organizations earned Miami University the nickname “Mother of Fraternities.” Today, the university hosts more than 50 fraternity and sorority chapters. Each chapter is committed to five Community Principles: Scholarship and Learning, Service and Philanthropy, Leadership and Values, Community, and Brotherhood and Sisterhood.

Approximately one third of Miami’s undergraduate student population are members of the fraternity and sorority community. Our members are involved in and are leaders of many university events, programs, and student organizations.

Fraternities and Sororities Provide an Environment Where:

  • The principles, values, and ideals of each organization are put into practice on a daily basis
  • Personal health, well-being, and safety are encouraged and promoted
  • Academic achievement of the individual and the group is valued and rewarded
  • The definition of what it means to be a member of a fraternity or sorority is inclusive of all Greeks at Miami
  • The non-discrimination policy of the University is supported and enhanced
  • The fraternity/sorority experience enhances the quality of the undergraduate collegiate experience
