Mountaineer Fraternal Awards


The Mountaineer Fraternal Awards program provides recognition for fraternal organizations excelling in areas of highest priority to the success of sororities and fraternities at West Virginia University. This annual assessment focuses on the five core values of the Center for Fraternal Values & Leadership at WVU: Scholarship, Service & Philanthropy, Strengthening Fraternal Bonds, Leadership, and Inclusive Excellence. Each of these values is intrinsically linked to the institutional values of West Virginia University (Curiosity, Service, Appreciation, Accountability, and Respect).

The Mountaineer Fraternal Awards program is voluntary.

Submissions are due by Noon on Friday, March 29, 2024.


All organizations recognized by the Center for Fraternal Values & Leadership (social/general, professional, academic, honorary, service, and/or special-interest organizations) are eligible and encouraged to apply for recognition.

Submission Information

Chapter representatives are welcome to upload any and all supporting materials for nomination. Typically, this would include a one to two page narrative explaining why the organization/individual is deserving of the award. Letters of recommendation may also be submitted.

Examples of supporting documents are meeting minutes or agendas, thank you letters, photos, news articles, printed programs, program fliers, program evaluations, screen shots, and so on. There are no standard documentation forms provided, so creativity is encouraged!
