In 2018, the University of Nevada, Reno, along with its University-recognized fraternities and sororities, conducted its regular, annual review process and amended the "Relationship Agreement for the Recognition of Social Fraternities and Sororities" to more accurately reflect national standards. Current unrecognized fraternities and sororities took issue with three of the amendments, including Section IV. Responsibilities of the Fraternities and Sororities, items 14, 18, and 21.
14. Each fraternity or sorority that maintains a chapter facility must identify and hire a live-in advisor prior to the 2020 calendar year.
18. Each fraternity and sorority will not host, attend, or participate in chapter activities with any student organization or club that is not recognized by the University.
21. Each fraternity or sorority must submit a comprehensive report outlining incidents or conduct involving individual chapter members managed by the chapter's internal standards board or process by the final day of classes each semester.
