The Office of Student and Family Engagement promotes campus involvement as an integral part of the university experience through inclusive opportunities that contribute to the vibrancy of campus life. We connect, enhance and support the experience of students, parents and guardians while at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

Our office includes the following units and programs:


Fraternity and Sorority Life

Involvement in fraternity and sorority life at UTC provides students the opportunity to be part of values-based organizations committed to academic excellence, civic engagement and social responsibility. UTC is home to 24 fraternities and sororities, with over 1400 active members.
