Greek Letter Organizations
Year in Review
Spring 2010-Winter 2011
June 2011
We are pleased to provide a copy of the "Year in Review" which illustrates the strength and vibrancy of the Greek Letter
Organizations and Societies (GLOS) at Dartmouth College.
Starting off our year with a move to the Collis Center for Student Involvement set a positive and dynamic tone for the
months to follow. Our central location allowed better visibility and access for our students, and allowed for better
collaboration with our partners in the Dean of the College division. We are proud to announce that Beta Alpha Omega
Fraternity has been fully recognized as a member of the Inter-Fraternity Council this year, and the college has
committed to breaking ground on a new house for the Alpha Phi Sorority, which will be completed and ready for
occupancy in the Fall of 2013. Additionally, Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity opened their new house in Spring 2011, to the
delight of the entire Webster Avenue community.
Organizations committed to improved long and short-term goal setting this year, and engaged in an action planning
process that can easily transition between leadership teams. Additionally, our office identified some training and
education needs, and began to address those through the creation of the Greek Leadership Training Institute (GLTI) in
the Spring term. With the addition of a new staff member this summer, we are looking forward to providing expanded
opportunities for curricular learning around leadership competencies for all affiliated students.
Involvement in Greek Letter Organizations and Societies remains strong, growing to nearly 68% of eligible students
choosing to join an organization. This represents an increase of nearly 20% since 2002, while the overall eligible student
population has only grown by 4.9%. Student investment and interest in Greek Life is strongly supported by the College.
President Jim Yong Kim meets with the Greek Leadership each term to hear their concerns and provide encouragement,
and the April 2011 meeting of the Board of Trustees largely focused on the state of GLOS at Dartmouth as well as
national trends. Through student lunches and panels, meeting with alumni advisors and hearing an extensive
presentation by senior leadership, the Board has committed to supporting the success of GLOS for the foreseeable
Through word and deed, we are consistently working to live our six pillars of Greek Life on a regular basis. The superior
leadership provided by the 2011 officers has set us on a positive trajectory for the next few years, and we will continue to
capitalize on that momentum. We would like to thank our advisors, student leaders, colleagues, and College leadership
for their consistent support through a challenging year!

Mission & Guiding Principles
Unanimously agreed upon by the Greek Life Steering Committee and adopted October
2001 by the Dean of the College
As participants in the Dartmouth College community, each Greek letter organization is
responsible for seeking creative and innovative ways of engaging in campus life while
simultaneously serving as stewards of a common set of values. The Dartmouth College Greek
letter community exists to complement the educational mission of the institution, to enhance
the quality of campus life, and to provide opportunities for social interaction that result in
personal growth. As members of the Dartmouth community, Greek letter members and their
organizations agree to uphold the following commitments:
Scholarship: To pursue the acquisition of knowledge, with individual academic
excellence as the primary goal.
Leadership: To teach skill development for use within the Greek community and
the broader community.
Service/Philanthropy: To foster an ethic of support and care through community
involvement and outreach.
Brotherhood/Sisterhood: To establish and nurture lifelong friendships among all
Inclusiveness: To build a community that embraces diversity and appreciates
differences in thought and opinion.
Accountability: To act responsibly with regard to choices, decisions, and
behaviors, and to maintain the integrity of these principles by insisting that all
members live up to them both in spirit and action. It is understood that Greek
organizations are accountable to Dartmouth College and the Dartmouth
community, to the membership of each individual organization, and to their
Greek peers.

NALFO 2010-2011 summary:
This past year, NALFO is proud to announce that we have been able to accomplish a great deal
as both individual organizations and as a larger collective. NALFO has met successfully over
the year and planned different mixers, movie nights, BBQs, and more in order to facilitate
bonding between our different organizations and communities. We were also able to work
together on a service project cooking dinner with Students Fighting Hunger. As individual
organization, we each have been able to accomplish some excellent awareness raising
programming and projects. One event to high light is LUL's 12th Noche Dorada that drew a
crowd of several hundred people to Collis Common Ground this past fall for a semi-formal
banquet centered around immigration issues and advocacy. We are also always proud the
SLU's Raices Week and the work APiO does surrounding Powwow and First Nations week. It
is important to conclude by saying that most of our NALFO orgs have grown over the year
through new membership intake (something that is always a priority for us all), and we are
very proud of our new members and are excited for the future of our organizations next year.
Order of Omega: The Order of Omega is a national honor society, which recognizes students'
achievements in academics, leadership and service. The Lambda Rho chapter of Order of
Omega is composed of members of all Dartmouth College Greek letter organizations. The
Order of Omega is limited to the top 3% of the Greek letter community.

Awards Ceremony
Recognizing Outstanding Achievement
Faculty Member of the Year
Each year, the GLOS community presents the Faculty Member of the Year Award
to a professor who exemplifies Dartmouth's commitment to an unparalleled
undergraduate education. This year's winner is Jamila Chahboun, nominated by
Michelle Ha, class of 2011.
Jamila has been a mother figure to not only me, but to all of her students for the
few years she has been here. She is the only professor I have met during my four
years here who has gone above and beyond the duties of a professor to be a mentor,
a friend, and a support network in of herself. The most amazing thing is that she
manages to fulfill these roles to each and every one of her students equally, without
having favorites--of course, many professors click with some of their students and
have similar impact on their lives, but it is certainly remarkable that Jamila does
this for everyone. I have spent a lot of time with her so I know almost every day she
forgoes lunch to meet with students who need extra help in Arabic, or to even just
chat with a student who hasn't been looking too happy in class to see if there is
anything difficult in his or her life and to let him or her know that she is available
to help and to understand.
I invited Jamila to AZD through a dinner sponsored by the faculty engagement
dinner, and she was very excited to meet with American sorority sisters as a
woman who had spent her whole youth growing up in an entirely different culture
in Morocco. As Academic Achievement Chair and the one responsible for bringing
her to AZD, I heard so much positive feedback regarding what a role model Jamila
is and the way she was able to inspire us even within the short hour we sat and ate
together while discussing life as a woman, cultural differences, and aspirations.

15 Webster Avenue Awards
The 15 Webster Avenue Fund is an endowment established in April 1993 in order to support
charity and community service projects by CFS organizations at Dartmouth. This endowment,
which generates $3000 a year, was created by the three organizations (Tau Epsilon Phi,
Harold Parmington Foundation, and Delta Psi Delta) that resided in 15 Webster Avenue before
the house was sold to the College in 1993. Currently, it is the home of Epsilon Kappa Theta.
One thousand five hundred dollars was granted to Alpha Phi for their
event The Red Dress Gala
The Red Dress Gala is an annual event hosted by Alpha Phi chapters nationwide. At
Dartmouth, it is open to all Dartmouth students and the community. The gala raises awareness
of heart disease, the number one killer of women in the United States. The event includes both
a dinner and a dance. During the dinner, speakers will talk about heart disease and an a
cappella group will perform. After dinner, the DJ will take over for the dance portion. The
event is a great opportunity for freshman and unaffiliated students to attend a formal event
similar to a Greek formal. The money raised will go towards the heart disease research grant of
the Alpha Phi foundation.
One thousand five hundred dollars was granted to Alpha Xi Delta for
their proposed project: Care Concert and Silent Auction for Autism
The sisters of Alpha Xi Delta would like to host a Care Concert and Silent Auction to raise
donations for our national charity Autism Speaks. Our hope is to involve a diverse audience of
students, faculty and Upper Valley community members to generate discussion and collective
collaboration around autism. This event would be a culmination of a month-long campaign of
education and outreach that would include small-scale fundraisers such as bake sales as well
as tabling in highly-trafficked campus spots to educate students about autism and to generate
enthusiasm about the Care Concert and Silent Auction.
