List of Frequently Asked Questions

What is the intent of this report? 

The National Fraternity and Sorority Scorecard is a research-based exploratory study of activities for Greek-letter organizations. The report will provide the Piazza Center with a national picture of the state of fraternities and sororities across the country. The report will include grade point averages, philanthropy dollars, service hours, and organizational conduct aggregated by public and private institutions as well as by institutional size by Carnegie classification. No campus or local chapter-specific data will be shared. The Piazza Center will aggregate information by national Greek-letter organizations when enough campuses participate. The goal of this report is to collect, compare, and analyze these data to help identify best practices that advance student safety and the overall student experience.

Can the report help reform fraternities and sororities? 

The scorecard is the first research-based exploratory study of activities for Greek-letter organizations and their national headquarters, giving us a national indication of the state of fraternities and sororities across campuses in the U.S. This scorecard is not only a step to add a layer of accountability, but also a way to inform parents and potential fraternity and sorority members of national organization behavior and accomplishments. Over time, this scorecard may reveal patterns and data that can be studied to identify effective policies and best practices for campuses as well as headquarters.

Can my institution join the project at any time? 

Yes, campuses can participate at any time. The Piazza Center accepts data on a rolling basis. The scorecard will be issued on an annual basis and it is important that as many schools as possible participate. Contact the Piazza Center for questions on which terms of data are currently being collected.

What if we don’t have all of our data? 

The Piazza Center will accept partial information. Our staff will work with your campus to assist in collecting the data that is currently available and then to add missing data at a later date.   

Can your institution stay anonymous? 

Yes. Your institution’s data is always confidential as the data are aggregated. No individual school or chapter will be singled out. If your institution would like to remain anonymous, the Piazza Center will not include your institution on the list of participating campuses.
