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.

Organization Amnesty

In partnership with organization members to promote health & safety, responsibility, and self-governance for a culture of long-term well-being, organizations will be eligible for amnesty from conduct processes in certain situations. Organizations will be eligible for amnesty when swift action has been taken by the organization to stop behaviors related to alcohol, drugs, and/or hazing, to provide an immediate remedy, and to propose or put measures in place to prevent such behaviors from occurring again. Should this policy be utilized, IU may not apply conduct charges, may not hold an administration conference for the organization, and may not progressively increase the organization's sanctions.

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.
