2021 NGLA Award Recipients

Each year, the Northeast Greek Leadership Association (NGLA) recognizes fraternity and sorority chapters, councils, communities and individuals for their outstanding accomplishments over the past year. Through innovative initiatives and commitment to the fraternal movement, everyone recognized has helped advance the mission of NGLA.

This year's awards submissions were outstanding, despite the COVID-19 complications. Applications highlighted efforts on how institutions got creative in navigating virtual recruitments, programs, workshops, and training during a pandemic. Thank you for submitting strong applications and showcasing your leadership!
