Project History

A community built on values

Fraternity and sorority members are leaders and scholars inside and outside of the classroom. Committed to demonstrating the values of scholarship, leadership, service to others and philanthropy, members consistently give back to the local and larger community. Each year, members provide thousands of service hours and donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to charitable organizations, while maintaining an all-Greek grade point average that consistently exceeds the average undergraduate student GPA at ASU.

 

The vision of the Greek Leadership Village began in the fall of 2012 when men in the Interfraternity Council expressed their interest to have an on-campus living experience. This expressed interest evolved into a series of conversations with students in the ASU fraternity and sorority community. Together, students articulated that the best fraternity and sorority community is one which is inclusive of an on-campus living experience.

"One of ASU’s missions is to provide access to everyone. With the Greek Leadership Village, we’ll have a truly inclusive area for on-campus living and a central meeting place to foster unity and leadership."

David Roberts, Kappa Alpha Order, Interfraternity Council President, 2015–2016

Project Phases

 

Phase 1

Fall 2012 – Fall 2015

Chapters engaged in a process to express their intent and interest to live in the village. The student committee responded by benchmarking Greek housing communities nationally. The housing committee engaged an architect to develop a concept of Greek housing at ASU. 

Phase 2

Spring 2016 – Fall 2016

Members of the fraternity and sorority community began to share the Greek housing concept with key stakeholders including: 

  • general chapter members
  • national organizations, alumni
  • chapter advisors and key partners in the city of Tempe.

Upon securing a builder for a project, floor plans and renderings of the facilities were developed in partnership with the student committee. 

Arizona Board of Regents approved the Greek Leadership Village project. 

Chapters came forward to express their interest to live in the village.

Phase 3

Spring 2017
