The Green Greek Certification

Any Greek Chapter recognized by Oregon State University and at the Corvallis Campus is eligible to get certified, as long as that chapter has some sort of physical footprint. For chapters without a physical space, please contact us and we can still help! 

This certification aims to foster a more sustainable Greek Life community and raise awareness about opportunities specific to that community. Survey questions measures chapter sustainability and provide a resource library and feedback for easy steps for improvement while still recognizing and awarding chapters for their hard work.
