This year we added some new initiatives focused on ways we can enhance IU’s efforts for creating a safe and healthy Greek community. These new measures were created after a series of seven forums held throughout the spring semester with engaged stakeholders regarding changes needed to improve the fraternity and sorority experience and community culture at IU. Following these forums, these measures were developed and reviewed by the Greek Task Force, which was created by the Office of the Provost, with the intention to implement a number of reforms aimed at improving the fraternity/sorority experience.
These new initiatives include 12 measures that address four broad focus areas:
- Student safety
- Academic achievement
- Good citizenship
- Diversity and inclusion
These new measures allow the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life to enhance educational programs, leadership development opportunities, prevention initiatives and staff support aimed at improving our Greek community. Our hope is that through these initiatives will serve as a model for other universities to follow.
