Greek Life leadership opportunities

Leadership, 2013

Browse through the following organizations and explore the leadership opportunities available to you through Greek Life.

GAMMA (Greeks Advocating the Mature Management of Alcohol)

GAMMA is a programming group comprised of selected members from various fraternities and sororities. We are responsible for creating and implementing programs that address risk management issues such as:

  • hazing prevention
  • alcohol awareness
  • safe Spring Break
  • sex education

 

Additionally, we hold chapters accountable to by-laws which require each chapter to register social events if alcohol will be present. We also coordinate and assign party checkers for each registered social event in order to help reduce risk.

Furthermore, we meet the educational needs of our Greek Life students with regards to critical risk reduction and social issues. The GAMMA programming board is also an affiliate member of the BACCHUS Network.

GAMMA is composed of twelve Greek students who are selected through an application and interview process to serve on the GAMMA Programming Committee. The committee is led by one Greek student Programming Coordinator and is advised by a member of the Greek Life staff. Alleged violations of GAMMA policies may be directed to the Greek Accountability Board for investigation.

GAB (Greek Accountability Board)

GAB is the peer judicial system of the Greek Life community at Northern Arizona University. Our group consists of:

  • seven student justices
  • one student adviser
  • one staff adviser

We are responsible for hearing cases related to the Greek community, and distributing sanctions when appropriate. We hear alleged violations of GAMMA and IFC/CPC/UGC or university policies. Membership in a fraternity or sorority is considered a privilege, not a right, and with this privilege comes the responsibility to behave in a manner exemplifying the ideals of Greek Life and to eliminate any behavior inconsistent with those goals.  In fact, self-policing of individual and group behavior remains Northern Arizona University’s primary expectation for its recognized student organizations.

Order of Omega

Order of Omega is a national Greek honor society. We recognize outstanding academic achievement and encourage a high standard of leadership in:

  • inter-fraternity activities
  • scholarship
  • Greek endeavors

Membership is based upon:

  • academics
  • service to the community
  • leadership within the chapter of membership and Greek community
  • participation in university activities, clubs, and organizations

You must have completed a minimum of 60 credit hours and have a cumulative grade point average of a 3.0 or higher. Order of Omega is advised by the Mountain View Graduate Assistant Hall Director.

Up 'til Dawn
Up ‘til Dawn is a letter writing campaign to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The event, coordinated by Greek students, is held at night on the NAU campus and attracts hundreds of participants from both the Greek and NAU communities.
