Safety & Accountability

Keeping our sororities and fraternities safe and accountable

Over the last five years, Indiana University has made changes to its Greek policies and programming to make the entire campus safer, including:

Anti-Hazing Policy

Hazing is strictly prohibited. Hazing shall be defined as any conduct which subjects another person, whether physically, mentally, emotionally, or psychologically, to anything that may endanger, abuse, degrade, or intimidate the person as a condition of association with a group or organization, regardless of a person’s consent or lack of consent.

Report hazing

If you have experienced hazing, witnessed hazing, or suspect someone you know to have been hazed, file a report immediately. In an emergency, call 911. Your actions will make campus a safer place for all Hoosiers.

Organizational misconduct

The Office of Student Conduct investigates, hears, and makes the decisions for all allegations of organizational misconduct, including allegations made by or against Greek organizations. Sanctions may include, but are not limited to:

  • Reprimand and warning
  • Disciplinary probation
  • Limit or ban on social activity or participation in campus activities
  • Attainment of standards
  • Deferred suspension
  • Suspension
  • Explusion

Allegations involving sexual misconduct, dating or domestic violence, or stalking will be heard by administrative board members trained in hearing matters of sexual misconduct.

Indiana Lifeline Law

We urge students to look out for each other, both on and off university property. The Indiana Lifeline Law gives immunity for minor alcohol offenses to people who are seeking medical assistance for a person suffering from an alcohol-related health emergency.
