Fraternities and sororities have a long and respected history at Kettering University/General Motors Institute. The first fraternity organized in 1926, only seven years after General Motors Institute opened its doors.  Today, 45% of our students belong to a fraternity or sorority.

View a list of current Greek chapters, governing organizations, their officers, and their contact information.

Greek chapters are governed by three bodies: Interfraternity Council (IFC), Panhellenic Council (Panhel), and Black Greek Letter Organization (BGLO) for the historically African American Greek Letter Organizations represented in Flint.

Kettering University maintains a commitment to create a learning environment with emphasis on a full collegiate experience for each student. The Greek system works in conjunction with the University to develop the whole student. Specifically Greek letter organizations foster:

    Leadership: Fraternities and sororities foster strong leadership. At Kettering University, almost all of the top student leaders are affiliated with the Greek system. According to Fortune Magazine, two-thirds of the most influential business and political leaders in the United States were fraternity members while in college.
    Scholarship: In addition to the national resources chapters utilize to ensure academic advancement of their members, chapters tap into Institute resources to provide sound scholastic direction.
    Philanthropics: Community service is an important aspect of Greek life on our campus. Chapters offer hundreds of hours and raise thousands of dollars each year for local Flint and national organizations to fulfill their comment to community service.
    Athletics: At Kettering University, the Student Senate Athletic Council sponsors the Intramural program. Annual awards are distributed to fraternities and sororities for outstanding sports participation records.
Kettering University does not condone hazing. Kettering University endorses the statement on the definition of hazing as distributed by the College Fraternity Executives Association, which is contained in the Relationship Statement. All activities sponsored by our fraternities and sororities must be consistent with their founding principles, and must complement the educational mission of the University.
