The mission of Fraternity & Sorority life (FSL) at Ottawa University is to inspire and develop positively engaged chapter members who fulfill a commitment to foster character, integrity, service, sound learning, and grace.

The vision of Fraternity & Sorority life (FSL) at Ottawa University is to be positively influential for the campus and community while demonstrating servant leadership, scholarship, and moral rectitude. The Fraternity & Sorority community will have multiple options for students to be involved.

By being a member of a fraternity or sorority at Ottawa University, students will:

  • Understand the importance of scholastic success and life-long learning.
  • Recognize and promote a culturally diverse community to provide social awareness of social injustice, and a deep commitment to civic engagement.
  • Cultivate life-long friendships based on common personal values, which then translate to the upkeep of the organization’s values.
  • Engage in healthy behaviors that reduce personal and organizational risk and liability.
