Please note that there are fraternities and sororities that are unrecognized on campus who do not obtain the advisement and benefits available to recognized organizations. We want to ensure students are joining organizations that are recognized by UCR and their respective councils. Students are encouraged to contact Carly Garcia, Fraternity and Sorority Advisor, for questions regarding organizations as needed.
What We Do
The fraternity and sorority community at UCR is dedicated to helping students have the best experience inside and outside the classroom. Students in the community dedicate countless hours to community service, donate thousands of dollars to charitable organizations, and are involved in many different areas on campus.
The Fraternity and Sorority Involvement Center sponsors major campus traditions like Pillars Week, Presents, and Pyramid. We host educational and leadership workshops, presentations, and trainings to build skills for students to succeed at UCR and beyond. We also recognize individuals and organizations through our Pillars Banquet Awards program.
Education and Leadership
Fraternity and Sorority Leadership Retreat
Hosted at the beginning of winter quarter, the Fraternity and Sorority Leadership Retreat emphasizes team building, leadership development, values-based decision making, effective communication, and community development. Students will return to UCR with an action plan, as well as the skills, relationships, and courage to make positive change within the fraternity and sorority community.
New Member Summit
Hosted every quarter, this educational series of workshops is required for all students who join a fraternity or sorority in that quarter. Students have an opportunity to meet fellow new members, understand shared values, know what to expect while a new member of a fraternity or sorority, learn about important risk management topics, and be connected with resources to make them successful while at UCR.
Pillars Week is an annual spring quarter tradition that unites all fraternities and sororities to promote community pride while engaging in meaningful community service and fun team building events. Fraternities and sororities team up to compete in leadership, service, and educational events.
