Chapter of Excellence

The Chapter of Excellence (COE) is a yearly competition created to recognize those fraternities and sororities who excel in areas such as community service, leadership, philanthropy, public relations, alumni relations and chapter management.


The COE Awards packet was restructured by the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life with assistance from select IFC and Panhellenic Executives in 2011. The packet is a combination of objective and subjective material.


We feel the new format will provide a continuous outline of guidelines and objectives that will motivate chapter leadership. In this we hope that you as leaders will delegate responsibility and keep the chapter membership proactive in their continuous operation, success, and commitment to excellence and shared values.


As always, we encourage you to tailor your COE award information to your national awards to receive recognition for your chapter’s efforts. Winning inter/national chapter awards is something that should be your primary focus and motivation every year. 


We wish you all the best of luck this year, and look forward to reviewing your chapter’s submissions!
