ABSTRACT:

The Inter-Greek Senate collection consists of records created by the body from 1980 through 1988 at Gustavus Adolphus College.  The bulk of materials are from 1982-1984.  Included are meeting minutes, correspondence, publications, membership lists for senate members, and information concerning parties held by various Greek organizations.  Newsletters, an awards packet, and a Task Force Report from 2003-06 are also included.  Folders are organized alphabetically while contents have chronological arrangement.


ORGANIZATIONAL NOTE:

The Inter-Greek Senate was formed in 1983 by the merger of Inter-Sorority Senate and Inter-Fraternity Senate.  It served as the advisory and governing body in policy matters for rush, pledging, initiation and fundraisers.  On 25 April 1988, the Board of Trustees adopted a motion which suspended all official recognition support of Greek social groups belonging to Inter-Greek Senate.  This action was ratified on 23 January 1989.

Information compiled by Edith “Edi” Thorstensson.
