Fraternities and sororities are challenged by members who demonstrate unethical behavior with the intent to benefit the organization. This poses serious challenges for practitioners in the field of fraternity/sorority advising. This study examines member’s values congruence with their fraternity/ sorority and its relationship to organizational commitment, identification, and unethical proorganizational behavior. Results from a robust path analysis (MLMV) indicate subjective values congruence can predict identification and commitment directly, while commitment directly predicts unethical pro-organizational behavior. Findings of the study provide several implications for fraternity/sorority practitioners.
