The Accreditation Program
Designed specifically with the Fraternity’s primary strategic plan objectives in mind, this program examines our Chapters’ operations in ten areas using the Chi Phi Standards of Chapter Excellence as its foundation. Over the past several years the Grand Council’s Accreditation Committee has met in person and via teleconference, conferred with professionals in other organizations and officials at Emory, Bucknell, and Lehigh Universities, and piloted an Accreditation program in survey form with a sample of 43 of our active Chapters and Colonies. The Accreditation program has thus continued to grow and develop with the needs of our Chapters.
Part of this growth has been its evolution into a year-long program, as established by a Motion at the 152nd Congress. Beginning with the Fall 2017 submission, Chapters which are Accredited only need to submit their materials once per year, in the Fall. Chapters failing to meet Accreditation standards will be required to submit their materials again in the Spring. All Colonies are required to submit each semester.
Specific instructions for your submission can be found linked below. If you are unsure if your Chapter was Accredited by their last submission, a list can be found at the bottom of this page for your convenience.
