The Executive Board of Directors (EBOD) work behind the scenes to aid the efficient operations of UGC while representing the entity as a whole. Officers are involved with a variety of multidisciplinary efforts that include creating and executing programs and events to serve UGC, maintaining chapter dues and budgeting, representing the council at workshops or events, working with the OFSL office and other Greek councils, or keeping a strong presence through marketing and social media.

Durnig Spring quarter of the academic year, each position is open to all members within UGC who are interested in broadening their leadership capabilities by taking on roles that will enable them to dive further into the world of Greek administration. Once elected to the Executive Board, members will go through a transition period with outgoing officers to ensure an efficient handover process. Being on the Executive Board allows Greeks to represent their houses while creating positive change that can benefit both their chapters and UGC as a whole.

Be sure to look out for more information on elections as the academic year progresses!

  • The United Greek Council, Joins the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life





    Congratulations to all members of the United Greek Council, with the affiliation with the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life! With this affiliation, there are many questions and concerns that may arise. This post is to help guide those that still may be uncertain about certain principles of this affiliation, as well as serve as a reference for future council members to come.



    What is the Affiliation with the OFSL?

    What Are Some Benefits to This Affiliation?

    Benefits:
    • Our very own advisor
      • They advise United Greek Council only, in comparison to the many other organizations SAO Advisers advise.
      • Their sole focus is United Greek Council and thus their goal is to champion us, push us to be better, and see us succeed.
      • They do more than what our SAO Adviser could do for us!
      • Advisors are trained and experienced in advising Greek organizations. They attend retreats, conferences, and more to learn how to better advise us.
      • Advisors can also serve as the liason for our applications for funding! Many of our aspiring ideas lack in terms of financial support, and having an advisor will greater aid us in receiving this funding, as well as implement our seat at the table for greater campus presence!
    • Bigger presence on campus
      • Directors of OFSL as well as University staff will become more aware and knowledgable of UGC. This means they can advocate for our council at events, meetings and more. 
      • The more people, entities on campus and the community know about us, the more collaborations and large-scale events you can expect from UGC.
    • Long-term planning and growth for UGC
      • An advisor and support from the OFSL can provide a more seamless transition between outgoing and incoming EBOD via institutional knowledge.
      • Intimate advising offered by our advisor and directors of the OFSL can help drive our mission and ensure we are actively working towards a goal 5, 10, even 20 years later down the line. 

    What Are Some Drawbacks to This Affiliation?

    Drawbacks:
    • Projected $9 dues per member, per year
      • This is about the cost of:
        • 2 Starbucks Drinks
        • 1 alcoholic drink (if you are 21+)
        • 2 Sharetea bubble teas
        • 1 - 2 uber rides
    • Greater commitments to the optional Recognition Agreement

    In Conclusion

    The United Greek Council Executive Board of the 2017 - 2018 school year, would like to greatly thank everyone that made this possible. We have worked extremely hard into making this affiliation happen, and are greatly anticipating the achievements that the future Executive Board's will bring to the table. There will definitely be some projected hurdles that must be overcome in the upcoming years, but this will only provide growth and education to our community, and will prepare all of us for the growth and longevity of this council that so many of us call home. We greatly appreciate the hard work and dedication to those that advised us, as well as those that have actively contributed to the conversations that grew this relationship between the OFSL and our council. We are anticipating great things, and are so excited for the future!
