University of Illinois Fraternity Chapter History Project 

In May 2000, the Student Life and Culture Archival Program and the Society for the Preservation of Greek Housing (SPGH) initiated a fraternity chapter history project to document the rich heritage of the University of Illinois Greek system.  

The Society for the Preservation of Greek Housing exists to preserve and document the unique architecture and historical significance of fraternal housing structures on the campus of the University of Illinois and beyond and to document the formation and contributions of the Greek fraternal system locally and at other select campuses.

Funded by the Society and administered by the Archives, the project's goal is to complete chapter histories for each social fraternity and sorority on the University of Illinois campus -- both active and defunct. Research assistants have completed twelve histories. They are listed below:
