History

Fraternity & Sorority Life has been a part of West Virginia University's history since 1890 with the Chartering of the West Virginia Alpha Chapter of Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity on May 23 of that year.

In 2015, the then-named Office of Greek Life was established with the hiring of an inaugural Director. In 2017, the office was renamed to the "Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life."

In 2018, the Fraternity & Sorority Alumni Council was established in a formed partnership between the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life and the WVU Alumni Association. Tom Begley, Pi Kappa Phi Alumnus, is the current FSAC President.

In 2019, the professional, academic, service, special-interest and honorary fraternities, sororities, and student organizations were added under the oversight of the office. As a result, in 2020 the Office was once again renamed to the "Center for Fraternal Values and Leadership" to recognize the multitude of organizations that fall under its direction.

With vibrant traditions such as Homecoming Floats, Greek Week, and the Big Greek Day of Service, the fraternity and sorority community flourishes with a 130 year history that includes thousands of West Virginia University alumni.
