The Annual Evaluation is a calendar year review of fraternity and sorority performance, achievements, and areas of improvement. Chapters are evaluated within the six domains of Fraternity and Sorority Life at New York University:
The purpose of the evaluation is threefold: institutional accreditation, awards and recognition, and potential housing eligibility. As a result, the Center for Student Life will be able to analyze chapter performance, assist in improving operations, and critically examine and enhance the FSL membership experience.
Organizations are scored on a five-level rubric.
90% to 100%
The chapter has met and exceeded all standards and expectations.
80% to 89.9%
The chapter has gone above minimal expectations at a satisfactory level.
70% to 79.9%
The chapter has met minimum expectations and standards.
60% to 69.99%
The chapter has not met minimum standards and is placed on probation.
50% or lower to 59.99%
The chapter’s rating is unacceptable and placed on immediate suspension. (For the inaugural year of evaluations, chapters that receive one star are placed on probation.)
Kappa Kappa Gamma is the only chapter that received 100% for their evaluation.
All chapters receiving a one or two star rating are placed on probation and required to develop a comprehensive improvement plan with FSL staff and their (inter)national headquarters. The plan(s) will have checkpoints throughout the year to hold the chapter accountable in their goals. In 2018, should a chapter on probation not receive a three star or above rating, they are subject to suspension.
