Give to Fraternity & Sorority Life

The University of Michigan is committed to transforming our students’ education by extending academic excellence from the classroom into real-world experiences that develop a global purview and a creative, entrepreneurial mindset.

Fraternity and Sorority Life supports the fraternity and sorority community at University of Michigan and, works with the four self-governing councils and their affiliated groups to provide support to students with recruitment, intake, event planning, educational programming, social, philanthropic, and logistical needs. Contributions will provide the staff the opportunity to enrich the lives of the sorority and fraternity members through workshops, forums, and more. With your generous donation, we can continue to provide quality academic, personal, social, and service opportunities that will empower our students to serve, lead, and conduct themselves with high integrity, in accordance with sound values.

The University’s largest-ever fundraising campaign, the first in which Student Life has participated with articulated goals, is thoughtful, visionary, and transformative – worthy of the name “Victors for Michigan.” Student Life is committed to student learning and the development of the whole student. We facilitate transformation and enrich education through new opportunities for learning and development; fostering an environment for the success of all community members; developing a deeper understanding of ourselves and others on an inclusive campus; enabling students to practice positive physical, emotional, social, intellectual, mental, and spiritual health; preparing students to succeed during and after their university experience; resolving complex issues through advocacy, services, and compliance; and providing programs and facilities for the physical, social, psychological, academic, and recreational needs of the campus community.
