The Center serves higher education through engaging partners in discourse on research and assessment on fraternities and sororities. We work with our many partners to promote existing research, support and advise new research and support endeavors to conduct research and assessment. To this end, we have some publications available for our members.
Publications are FREE to CSCF members. Kindly send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, detailing the publications you would like to receive, and these will be sent to you as PDF files. If you are not a current CSCF member and would like to join, go to the membership tab and register your membership.

Jelke, Ph.D of t.jelke solutions and Courtney Greene McDonald, M.L.S., Head, Discovery & Research Services at Indiana University. This compilation contains academic journal articles and dissertations related to fraternity and sorority life from 2009-2014.
Through our partnership with the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors (AFA), we have been able to support the publication of research on the fraternal movement.
The Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors provides a scholarly research journal, Oracle: The Research Journal of the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors (Oracle). CSCF is pleased to have served as a partner in the creation of the journal. We continue to work with AFA to promote research in the profession. Oracle is published twice annually. AFA members can access the journal through the Association's website. Non-members may access issues prior to the most current issue. Subscriptions are also available.
