Social Organizations and Activities
Student organizations such as fraternity and sorority chapters, student government, campus ministries and major-specific clubs will be active in the fall semester. Student organizations hosting in-person programs or events will be expected to follow current health and safety guidelines.
Fraternity and Sorority Life is a department within the UTC Office of Student Engagement that supports these student organizations. Support includes creation of policies and processes specifically designed to address organizational conduct. Leaders from all Greek organizations are required to attend meetings with UTC staff throughout the semester and, in fall semester 2020, these will include discussions on COVID-19 guidelines and expectations for chapters.
All UTC students, regardless of membership in a fraternity or sorority, are held accountable to the Student Code of Conduct.
Fall 2020 Panhellenic Rush
UTC Panhellenic Council moved recruitment to a fully virtual format. A full schedule for Panhellenic recruitment and information on how to participate in Intrafraternity Council, National Panhellenic Council and other special-interest groups is at: https://www.utc.edu/fraternity-sorority-life/how-to-join.php
Student and Family Engagement
The Office of Student and Family Engagement works to plan and host events outside the 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. work day. Events are organized on evenings and weekends, too. In addition, other campus offices and student organizations will offer programming.
A combination of in-person and virtual programs are being offered to engage students this fall. The format and structure of in-person programs will follow current recommendations and guidelines from state and local officials, the CDC and University officials on the maximum number of participants allowed and social distancing requirements.
Student engagement programming and support services from the Office of Multicultural Affairs, Center for Women and Gender Equity and the Center for Student Wellbeing are being offered during the day and evening.
