Fraternity and Sorority Standards Board
What is the Fraternity and Sorority Standards Board?
The purpose of the Fraternity and Sorority Standards Board (FSSB) is to establish a level of acceptable behavior for the entire Greek community. The FSSB is comprised of your Greek peers that will give general advice on risk management, policy infractions and group discipline issues pertaining to fraternities and sororities. The FSSB also offers mediation and judicial hearings cases that are reported to the board, and provides further educational resources and appropriate sanctions.
The FSSB is designed to protect the rights of each chapter, to reinforce the values of the university and the community, and to help each chapter to reevaluate their behavior and to modify it toward action as a responsible citizen, student and Greek member.

Standards Infraction Reporting Form (SIRF)
A Fraternity and Sorority SIRF can be filed by anyone. Filling this out is the only way to go through the Standards Board rather than Public Safety, unless you or the accused is in violation of either the university's Code of Community Standards, or Florida State law.
Filing a Standards Infraction Reporting Form
To file a SIRF, follow these steps:
- Does this incident violate Stetson University's Code of Community Standards?
- If so, please report your incident.
- Is this incident a report of a disagreement between chapters, stealing of chapter property, chapter house vandalism or a risk management issue, please complete and submit a Fraternity and Sorority SIRF.
- Is this a recruitment infraction or violation? Email your Council recruitment officer to proceed in the process.
Fraternity and Sorority Recruitment Infraction Reports
During the fraternity and sorority recruitment process, we do much to ensure that all current and potential new members are well-informed of all rules and procedures. In the case that a current member or potential new member sees an incident, rule or policy being broken, or personally feels harmed, they are strongly encouraged to complete a Fraternity or Sorority Recruitment Infraction Report as soon as possible.
Sorority Recruitment Infractions
The Panhellenic Recruitment Infraction Form can only to be filed by Panhellenic recruitment team members, chapter presidents, potential new members and others as listed on the infraction report form.
Recruitment infraction violations are solved through mediations. The purpose of mediation is to find a solution that is satisfactory to both parties. The mediator (FSSB, Panhellenic members only) is there to assist all parties in making a decision. Each party is entitled to an advisor of their choice. If a PNM files the infraction, her Rho Gamma may serve as her advisor. During the mediation, each party has the opportunity to tell their side of the story uninterrupted. The mediator will facilitate discussion between both parties. If no solution is reached, the case is referred to the FSSB.
Fraternity Recruitment Infractions
The Fraternity Recruitment Infraction Form is to be used by any current fraternity members or potential new members going through the formal recruitment process. Chapter presidents, recruitment chairs, potential new members and university Fraternity & Sorority Involvement staff may file a report.
Fraternity recruitment infractions are solved through Standards Board mediations. The student that filed the report will attend a hearing to which they may bring up to two witnesses. The accused member or organization will be present and have the opportunity to give their side of the story. At the conclusion of the mediation, the Fraternity & Sorority Standards Board officers will determine whether the accused is guilty or not, and decide on an appropriate sanction for that members organization.
