Weekly Briefs 9/7

Action Items

University Pause – We hope that our community members could find solace over the weekend as we participated in UW’s shelter in place ordinanceWe are patiently awaiting decisions by university officials on what the rest of the semester will entail. We understand that the fluid decision making has been frustrating and confusing at times, but UW is doing its best to cater to the many university stakeholders and put the health and safety of its students, faculty, and staff as its highest priority. As plans come forward, please reach out to your chapter leadership and FSL Liaison as needed.  

Formal Sorority Recruitment – This week is recruitment for our four NPC chapters! The rounds will be held virtually September 10-14th. Bid Day has also been moved to a virtual format. Direct interested parties to the FSL website to sign up. Questions about recruitment can be sent to Associate chapter recruitment will begin September 14th.

IFC Recruitment – All recruitment activities will be held online until further approval according to FSL, RSO and University policies. The chapter builder link is up and running on the FSL websitePlease use the attached flier to market on chapter platforms.   

IFC and CPH meetings – Delegate meetings continue this week.  

  • CPH on Monday at 4PM via Zoom 
  • IFC is currently on Tuesday at 4PM via Zoom but may change due to conflicts 

September Advisors & Presidents Meeting – Thank you to everyone that attended the Questions & Answers session after the meeting with President Seidel. Notes from this session can be found on UW Connect.  

COVID-19 Updates & Reminders

Phase 1 (now) – All functions (events/activities/meetings) are to be held virtually. 

Phase 2 (Pending Pause Plan updates) – Student Org functions should continue to be held virtually. Hybrid (virtual and in-person component) may be possible ONLY if 100% of the in-person attendees are in the Phase 2 bridge testing group. 

Phase 3 (begins Sept. 28) – In-person functions resume with maximum capacity up to 50 people (if space permits). Social distancing and masks will be expected. Attendance will need to be tracked via UW Connect attendance tracker for contact tracing purposes. More details and guidelines will be released as we get closer to Phase 3.  

Phase 4 (begins Nov. 23) – Move back to virtual functions only. 

We are trying to stay on top of the changing times. If you have questions about future activities and planning something during phase 3, please email and we will work with your organization on an individual basis.  

No Off-Campus Exceptions – If you are gathering as a chapter, these expectations are applicable to BOTH on-campus and off-campus gatherings because you are gathering as your organization which is affiliated with the University (similar to if you were traveling for your chapter, you would be representing the University of Wyoming in that space at that time). Questions about the phased re-opening can be sent to 

Reducing Spread – Masks, physical distancing, and handwashing/hand-sanitizing are the key to reducing the spread of this virus. Practicing these things now will increase the likelihood of in-person events actually taking place (including CPH bid day, philanthropy events, social events, etc). PLEASE do your part to wear your mask in ANY public setting, on or off-campus, wash your hands regularly, and maintain physical distance of 6ft or more between people you are not regularly with.
