Community Standards is a set of mandatory submissions that the Interfraternity Congress and Panhellenic Council at CWRU require chapters to complete to ensure that chapters are consistently growing and meeting the minimum criteria of being an active Greek Chapter on campus. The overall purpose is to build organizations which produce members of character, integrity, leadership, and who practice citizenship through careful attention to the pillars of the Greek community.
How it works:
1. Chapters demonstrate meeting of these standards by submitting a chapter management plan, along with documentation that demonstrates satisfactory work in each pillar.
2. Associate Justices on the Joint Judicial Board grade this documentation;
3. Based on those results, chapters who do not pass are required to meet with members of the Judicial Board to understand more about the barriers to not passing and work together to restore the chapter's status in meaningful ways. These outcomes are commonly referred to as sanctions, but we prefer a learning and restorative approach.
