Fraternity and Sorority Judicial Board

The Valparaiso University Fraternity and Sorority Judicial Board was established in 1998 by the chapter presidents and executive board of the Panhellenic and Interfraternity Councils. The purpose of the Fraternity and Sorority Judicial Board is to provide an orderly and stable fraternity/sorority community in which the freedoms members are provided may be protected. The Fraternity and Sorority Judicial Board may act in fraternity/sorority matters at the discretion of the Dean of Students.

The intent of this program stems from the idea that the fraternity/sorority community should take responsibility for its own actions and when necessary set forth procedures where by those organizations who are accused of violating fraternity/sorority community rules may be afforded the due process and, when appropriate, fair sanctions.

Quotes from Valpo's Fraternity and Sorority Members

There are two things that I believe are the best parts about being in a sorority. First is all of the lifelong friends I have made. It is truly amazing that the bond of a sorority can last for a lifetime. Second is all of the opportunities I have had. I have the privilege of being President of my sorority, attended leadership conferences, and I have met so many people that could help me in the future.  Kylee Steuer, Gamma Phi Beta, Valpo Class of 2014

"The best part of being a fraternity man is the fact that I was able to meet so many great people that I would have most likely never befriended, and I now have brothers that I know would lay down anything to coome to my aid whether in college or after." Vince Martino, Phi Kappa Psi, Valpo Class of 2015

"Kappa Delta has taught me time management, leadership, and provided lifetime friendships. Through Kappa Delta I have been able to hold many different positions including Vice President Member Education and President. I have also become involved in other organizations on campus because of my connections from the sorority. My college experience would not have been as worthwhile if it wasn't for my sorority membership." Jordan Stein, Kappa Delta, Valpo Class of 2013
