Education Programs 2016-2017

Background

In support of the mission and values of the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life, we are requiring all organizations to attend 4 educational programs with a minimum of 70% attendance based on the winter roster, in order to register for the 2017-2018 academic year.  The four educational program components are:

  1. Hazing Prevention

  2. Alcohol Risk Reduction

  3. Social Justice Essentials

  4. Sexual Violence Prevention

2016-2017 Structure

To accommodate students meeting these educational goals, OSFL has worked with several campus partners:

  1. Community Resource and Retention Centers

  2. Center for Advocacy, Resources and Education

  3. Health Education and Promotion

These partners will offer 2 programs per quarter per component, a total of 6 for the year, and chapter members can attend any of the offered programs to receive credit for their chapter.Space is limited, so members are encouraged to sign up beforehand and to attend as early as possible:

All programming times will be listed on the OSFL calendar.

To receive credit

Students must attend for the full duration of the program and must play a role as an active participant.  Students who are not engaging, for example on cell phones, watching videos on computer, etc. Will be asked to leave and also will not receive credit for the event.

Future goal

The goal this year is to get attendance for all organizations as close to 100% as possible.  If we are able to achieve this goal, the plan is to then restructure next year to create a campus wide new member education program that will cover these programs.  The only exception to this is the sexual harassment and assault preventions program as The UC Pffice of the President is currently mandating all Sororities and Fraternities, and other groups, to do mandatory education for all members yearly.   New members will be required to attend the area wide new member program within 2 quarters of going active.
