In the early 1990’s, the University began to look at ways in which fraternity and sorority chapters could enhance the types of programming offered to members. After drawing input from students, campus faculty and staff , as well as fraternity and sorority professionals from across the nation, the University proposed implementation of a program centered on the concept of helping chapters return to the values upon which they were founded. Implemented in 1995, the Foundation for the Future (aka The Maryland Plan) document charted a new path for Greek students at the University of Maryland. Since its inception, vast improvements in areas such as academics and programming have assisted our Greek community in reaching new heights.
Starting in 2008 and continuing to the present, with the same energy and collaboration that went into the first document, the University has embarked on a new effort, developing, improving and establishing Chapter Expectations as the new starting point for the future of fraternity and sorority life.
