SOPI Rating System for Student Organizations


The SOPI Rating system was created by the Center for Student Development & Campus Activities for two main reasons.

  • Establish a consistent language for the current status of all recognized student organizations and greek chapters on the Westchester campus
  • Reward those groups that are high achieving and provided required development for those that are not.

The SOPI Rating System will go Live this Fall 2015 and full implementation will be completed by the Spring 2016 semesters. 

Awards and recognition programs will incorporate the SOPI Rating, so all groups should be aware of where they are at!

A full detailed listing of the Student Organization and Greek Chapter requirements can be found at the below links!
