Northern Arizona University Greek organizations appreciate the benefits of diversity and have designed their membership selection processes to offer a mutual exploration for chapters and prospective members alike.  Every student is welcome and encouraged to participate in Greek membership selection.

The Northern Arizona University Greek system encourages participation of students from diverse backgrounds.  The Greek philosophy promotes self-worth, human dignity and positive image. Discrimination on the basis of race, ethnic background or economics will not be tolerated in any area of membership selection. 

Each chapter will affirm its compliance with membership selection processes that are in accordance with the NAU student organization non-discrimination statement as set forth below:
Northern Arizona University prohibits discrimination in organizational membership on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, religion, age, or veteran status. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 106.14, makes an exception for social fraternities and sororities with regard to gender requirements for membership.
