Standards of excellence is our annual awards banquet for the Sorority and Fraternity Life Community. Each year, members of the community are acknowledged and honored by the Center for Student Staff for their diligent work on campus and the greater Davis community. Awards are given in the categories of Scholarship, Leadership, Community Service and Community Involvement.

Individual leaders are also acknowledged for their pivotal leadership and accomplishments during their time at UC Davis. Chapter awards are also given to various chapters to celebrate all that is done for the larger campus community. For questions regarding Standards of Excellence please contact Payton Gates-Troske (pagates@ucdavis.edu).
