Fraternity and Sorority Life
In 1969, Theta Chi fraternity was founded on campus and for many years was the only Greek letter chapter at the University. In 1986, a small group of students started the process to build a larger greek community. Since that time Fraternity and Sorority Life has grown to include 300 plus students that make up 12 nationally recognized Greek organizations.
Greek involvement provides a unique opportunity for students to have a balanced college life with a focus on academic excellence, brotherhood/sisterhood, community service and responsible social interaction. Fraternity and Sorority Life allows students to make lasting friendship with individuals with similar ideals and purposes.
The Office of Student Life works closely with all Greek organizations to improve their organizations and to help their members become successful student leaders of the University of Michigan-Flint community.

All-Greek IMPACT 2013
On the weekend of February 1-3, 2013, fraternity and sorority members of the UM-Flint Greek community attended IMPACT®, a program hosted annually on the UM-Flint campus and put on by the North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC). IMPACT® is a campus based leadership institute designed to foster improved relationships among campus leaders through an intensive, interactive two and one half day program. The IMPACT® curriculum emphasizes problem solving, leadership development, values-based decision making, effective communication, and community development. It is expected that change will be the result of an IMPACT® weekend. Participants determine what that change is through their participation in the institute.
The goal of IMPACT® is to enable positive change within a fraternity/sorority community. This is accomplished through a variety of methods throughout the institute. Through large group sessions, complimented by small group discussions, each participant has the opportunity to personalize the IMPACT® experience. All sessions offer hands-on experimental activities and ample discussion time to address individual concerns. The sessions are led by two experienced presenters (identified by the NIC) and several small-group facilitators (identified by the host campus).
All fraternity and sorority members are encouraged to attend the next session of IMPACT®, to be held tentatively in winter 2014.
