Summary Despite negative connotations and empirical evidence to support detrimental aspects of membership, decades of nationally representative data show students remain interested in joining fraternities and sororities. This monograph reconsiders the value question based on scholarly research published since 1996 in the following ways: (1) through identifying behavioral, psychosocial, and educational outcomes of fraternity/sorority involvement; (2) by differentiating outcomes between and among organizations, when possible; and (3) through recommending implications for policy and practice based on reasearch. - from back cover.
