Phase II: Fall 2018

Recruitment and Education Plans

Each chapter must submit a new member education plan prior to participating in new member education. Chapter leadership will assume accountability for adhering to the approved plan. 

Implementation Plan

The Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life will create a formalized process for alerting OSFL of Recruitment and Intake efforts. While the office expects the completition of a Total Member Development Plan, the New Member Recruitment & Education Plan will be seperate and only be submitted prior to Recruitment or Intake beginning. Plans may look different depending on the needs of the council. Failure to adhere to the stated plan, as written, will be considered as a component of the Chapter's overall health.

Educational Programming

Prospective and current members must participate in mandatory educational programming (including, but not limited to, university expectations, hazing awareness, and policies on alcohol, drug use, and sexual and related misconduct) in order to be eligible to participate in new-member recruitment and intake processes. 

Implementation Plan

The Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life will hold sessions for Potential New Members in the Fall semester with common themes and information. To participate in a Recruitment or Intake process, participation is required. Potential New Members should also plan to partipate in Intevene Training hosted by OSFL, dates for all trainings can be found here. Trainings will also be offered throughout the year for current members regarding hazing prezention, event management, bystander intervention, and sexual violence awareness and education.

Performance Scorecard

A systemwide, online scorecard will be published and updated annually to include, among other things, the full judicial history of each chapter. This website will be publicized to the campus community and to the parents of all students. 

Implementation Plan

The performance scorecard will be published, including chapter judicial history, during the summer of 2019.

Event Management Guidelines

A comprehensive review of event management guidelines will be conducted and submitted for my approval. The review will include, but not be limited to, the training required for sober monitors, the use of independent bystander intervention services, the distribution of beer and wine for large events, and the number of large events permitted.
