Policies and Guidelines

GOLD Standards Program

The FIU GOLD Standards (Greek Outcomes for Lifelong Development) were created in Spring 2011 by a group of Fraternity & Sorority Leaders. Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) Staff currently use the GOLD standards as a tool to help measure the current standing of chapters. We use the data collected to report back on the accomplishments of individual chapters and the community overall. The information collected informs various reports given to university and national community officials. Completing the GOLD Standards Reports is required to be recognized by FSL and the local governing councils.

The GOLD Standard reports that are required are:

  • Beginning of the Semester Report
  • Monthly Programming & Event Report
  • End of the Semester Report.
Please contact Natalie Rollan with any questions regarding GOLD Standards.


Hazing is a violation of the FIU Student Code of Conduct. Hazing is defined as any group or individual action or activity that inflicts or intends to inflict physical or mental harm or discomfort or which may demean, disgrace, or degrade any person, regardless of location, intent, or consent of participant(s). Hazing includes, but is not limited to forced consumption of any food, alcohol, controlled substances, drugs, or any other substance, forced physical activity, deprivation of food or sleep, physical abuse of any nature, and verbal abuse, including yelling or demands.

Sober Monitor Training

In order to ensure that the members of our fraternity and sorority community develop into well rounded leaders on campus, we believe all chapter members and leaders should be knowledgeable on how properly plan proactively for social functions. As part of our community education program we include Sober Monitor training for all of our members. As part of our Program Event Planning Form & Approval Process, we require members to be certified sober monitors in order to serve in that capacity at their respective chapters’ social functions. Sober Monitor Trainings occur twice a semester and all chapter members who have not completed sober monitor training should attend.
