COLUMBIA, Mo. – University of Missouri Interim Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Gary Ward today released the Dyad Strategies report analyzing the Greek system at the university. The report provides a detailed analysis of the Office of Greek Life and the Greek system while also presenting several recommendations for improving the Greek experience at MU.

“From the beginning of this process, our goal has been to make the Mizzou Greek system the best in the country,” Ward said. “I’m very grateful for the work of Dyad Strategies and this report; it is providing us a thorough review of our Greek system. We will be reviewing the report and recommendations very carefully to determine our next steps. Throughout its history, the Greek system at Mizzou has impacted the community and the lives of thousands of students, giving them invaluable leadership and service experiences. This report was a first step, and we look forward to building the future of the Greek system while keeping in mind that campus safety is our top priority.”

Ward said that Gentry McCreary, CEO and managing partner at Dyad Strategies, will begin gathering a large group of alumni, friends of the university, students, staff and faculty who will review the report and recommendations. Any final decisions about moving forward on specific recommendations will not be made until spring 2018.
