section one2Creating Chapters of Excellence (CCE)As a part of the university Residential Initative, thefraternity and sorority community has been pilotingCreating Chapters of Excellence (CCE) over the courseof the last four years. With tremendous support of alumni,this effort has focused on improving the Cornell Fraternityand Sorority community through individualized chapter levelsupport from the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs. CCE isdesigned to take a multifaceted approach, applying the foundingprinciples and current values of our fraternal organizations totoday’s setting. This includes promoting interactive experienceswith faculty, staff, and alumni; creating cultural and educationalopportunities for members; and improving facility and financialmanagement of each chapter.The program is voluntary, but brings with it additionalsupport and incentives to motivate chapters to align behaviors,standards, and programming with what has become known asthe “Creating Chapters of Excellence Philosophy.” The CCEmodel attempts to achieve the same level of opportunities forstudent learning and quality living as we have seen in campusresidence halls and theme houses while recognizing the uniquepurpose of fraternal organizations. Throughout the past yearwe have continued to emphasize a partnership among students,faculty, alumni, and staff and promote the student-centered,and self-governed nature of our Greek Community.Near Peer FellowsOne of the hallmarks of Creating Chapters of Excellence hasbeen the evolution of the Near Peer Fellow program. This pastyear the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs hired fourrecent graduates as part-time Graduate Fellows in order toprovide chapters with additional staff support and mentorshipdedicated to the programmatic, organizational, and selfdevelopmentneeds of the leadership of the chapters. AndreaIppolito ’06, Lisa Floyd ’01, Frederick Hawkins, and BrandonSmetana ’06 were trained to act as liaisons and mentors forstudent leaders, giving chapters more attention than ever beforewith the expectation providing consistent support and guidance.Each of the near peer fellows assisted leaders with goal setting,program planning, and addressed the unique needs of each ofthe six chapters for with which they work.Events, Programming and ServicesChapters used Creating Chapters of Excellence funds to supporta number of programs and services for their membership, theGreek system, Cornell, as well as the Ithaca community.

sectiontwoSign of the Times The 2007 MGLC Executive Board display their unity through the use of hand signs. Hand signs started in the1970’s as part of the Black fraternal experience and is seen as an outward expression for organizational identification and to displaypride. Since that time, Latin and Asian Greeks began to adopt their own individual hand signs relevant to their national organizations.Self-governance is the hallmark of the fraternity and sorority experience. Membership in the fraternity and sorority community isdivided among three councils: the Interfraternity Council, the Multicultural Greek Letter Council, and the Panhellenic Association.Although each council has individual goals and objectives, there are shared opportunities for leadership and educational efforts.The following section highlights several cross-council initiatives, as well as a multitude of accomplishments from each governing body.Tri-CouncilFraternity and Sorority Committee onAlcohol and Other Drugs (AOD)The Greek AOD committee worked this year under thedirection of Tri-Council Near Peer Fellows Alex Deyle ’06(Sigma Pi), David Bean ’07 (Delta Phi), Raquel Corona ’07(Lambda Pi Chi), and Katie Seeley ’07 (Kappa Delta).

In 1998 the university commissioned the architectural and engineering firm of Einhorn, Yaffee, and Prescott (EYP) to undertake acomprehensive assessment of each of the fraternity and sorority houses on campus (total of 54 facilities). The study revealed theaggregate capital needed to address facility improvements was approximately $38 million with an additional estimated $12 millionneeded to complete suggested or desired improvements. Since 2000, many of our chapters have activated or completed capital fundingcampaigns ranging from $500,000 to $4,000,000. The other chapters have made steps to establish or have pending 501 C3 educationalfoundations and nine privately-owned organizations are receiving or have university approved gift recognition credit.University-Owned Chapter FacilitiesOf the 68 recognized chapters, 51 have a chapter house, 15 ofwhich are owned by the university. The approximate asset valueof the university owned chapter houses is nearly $80M. That’sover 266,000 square feet times $300 per square foot. Annualrevenues for 2006-07 cleared $3.3M. Housing income wasover $2.4M. Gift income was just under $900,000. Investmentincome was nearly $38,000. Routine maintenance and capitalexpenses were over $900,000. Capital planning renovationscontinues with most organizations. Note that while the majorityof the work was completed in the 2007 fiscal year (FY 07) some ofthe projects in the following updates did not close until FY 08.The 15 university owned chapter houses are now part of theCampus Life work order system. The system is web accessed andallows student leaders to request maintenance work any time ofday or night, 7 days per week. The system is also a finely tuneddatabase allowing maintenance managers to better track currentwork, history, and physical plant data.In response to kitchen safety and sanitation needs OFSA hiredChristine Applegate. Christine has accomplished numeroustraining sessions and kitchen reviews. She is a Serv Safetrainer/certified instructor and has begun training cooks, chefs,students and kitchen help.

A new balcony was rebuilt on the north sideof the 14 South Ave. building.Chi PhiBuilt in 1890 the Chi Phi chapter house is the oldest survivingchapter house on the Cornell campus. The exterior southwall is nearly inaccessible, as the building sits on the edge ofCascadilla gorge. The south wall and entire roof was repairedwith a total cost over $900,000. The roof was covered with a50 year architectural shingle and included copper gutters anddownspouts giving the building a more original look.Delta Kappa EpsilonThe DKE house was built in 1891.

This list,although not comprehensive, includes information obtainedfrom surveying alumni.Alpha Omicron PiAlpha Omicron Pi completed extensive renovations to itsnew facility at 40 Ridgewood Road to prepare the house foroccupancy beginning in the Fall of 2006. These renovationsincluded gutting and replacing nine bathrooms, replacing orrefinishing all wood and stone floors, repainting all commonareas, installing a sprinkler system, landscaping the front andback yards and converting the house’s former party rooms intoa TV room and pool table room.

At this celebration the chapter officially launchedthe Epsilon Chapter Educational Foundation to allow thechapter to collect tax-deductible gifts.Fire Safety Systems SurveysectionfourFinances and Facilities Campaign UpdatesIn September 2006 the Office of Fraternity and Sorority AffairsFacility Director, Martin Kelly, did a survey of the fire safetysystems in all of the privately owned greek houses. Since theyare private houses, and not owned by Cornell, it was based ona brief site visit, not a full building inspection. Answers givenby occupants to questions such as “Is there a sprinkler head inevery bedroom?” helped form the results. We maintain currentdata on the University owned greek houses so a survey was notneeded to assemble that data.Cornell OwnedGreek HousesPrivatelyOwned GreekHousesCompletely sprinklered 100% 44%Partially sprinklered 23%Not sprinklered 33%Modern type fire alarmsystem100% 75%Older type fire system 12%Little or no fire system 12%8

The judicial system that governs fraternities and sororities is two-fold. The primary process, the Greek Judicial Board isself-governed. Council officers partner with the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs to resolve cases of alleged chaptermisconduct. The secondary process is facilitated by the University Review Board and is the administrative judicial process forthe Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs. Cases involving allegations of individual misconduct are referred to the Office of theJudicial Administrator. Below is the four-year summary of the judicial complaints compiled by the Office of Fraternity and SororityAffairs.
