Guidelines for Greek Clubs/Organizations at Baruch College
It is the mission of the Greek Life organizations at Baruch College to create a safe and respectful community for Baruch students to build relationships, develop and practice leadership skills, and set the bar for civic engagement and community service.
The Greek community is based on three foundational values:
Students that participate in Greek life organizations and events will:
- Have the opportunity to develop their leadership knowledge and skills through retreats, forums and campus-wide Greek programming
- Increase awareness of social justice issues such as gender, race, sexuality, and health
- Demonstrate commitment to civic engagement through intentional community service opportunities sponsored by Greek clubs
- Enhance their understanding of what it means to be a responsible and respectful citizen of the Baruch College community.
