Greek Life Reform Initiatives Post-2017 (ID 173)

Academic leaders are working to balance benefits of the Greek life experience against its human costs. Participation in Greek-letter organizations produces benefits such as a sense of belonging, loyalty to the institution, philanthropic support, and professional development. Paradoxically, it is also the site of repeated hazards resulting in student deaths and injuries. Universities' inability to intervene leaves new students vulnerable and institutions liable. Eliminating harm is imperative, yet evidence-based solutions remain illusive. The presenters will share new harm-reduction initiatives.
