Chapter Presidents are encouraged to use this time as an opportunity to gain advice in the following areas:

  • Administration
  • Leadership Development
  • Operations
  • Recruitment
  • Service (Community Service & Philanthropy)

See which staff member has been assigned to serve as your Staff Liaison (pdf) for the year.

The Fraternity & Sorority Affairs staff works closely with inter/national staff and volunteers to support the operation and administration of its chapters. We welcome any and all consultant and national officer visits.

During a consultant visit, we are more than happy to discuss items pertaining to the council in which the chapter maintains membership and the university. More specifically, we will typically review academics, membership/recruitment.

Should the consultant or national officer request any documentation not traditionally provided during a visit, we ask you please contact the individual staff member with whom you plan to visit to ensure amble time is provided to pull the documentation together.

To schedule a visit with a staff member, please contact Michelle Hart at or call (217) 333-7062. To best accommodate all schedules, we request at least two weeks notice prior to any visit.

Each of the four governing councils: Black Greek Council, Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic Council, and the United Greek Council have a member of the staff within Fraternity & Sorority Affairs who works with the elected officers as their council advisor.

The role of the council advisor is to provide guidance on council operations, administration and planning. While the management and operations of the council are the responsibility of the elected/appointed officers for the respective council, the advisor plays a key role in guiding those decisions based on best practice, knowledge of policies and laws that govern the councils and organizational purpose. Advisors also provide historical perspectives which many undergraduates may not have. The advisor will meet individually and as a group with the council officers and may attend relevant business meetings or programs in support of the organization.

Below is a listing of council advisors:

  • Black Greek Council: Angeline Jones
  • Interfraternity Council: Amanda Wahba
  • Panhellenic Council: Angeline Jones
  • United Greek Council: Amanda Wahba
