GREEK UNIVERSITY'S SEVEN STRATEGIES FOR COMMUNITY CHANGE ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES
Since 2015, we've been able to help create safer campuses using the following strategies:
1. Providing information to fraternity members, sorority members, and student athletes via educational presentations, workshops, seminars, social media, podcasts, and a new book that will be released in Q1 2021!
2. Enhancing the skills of all participants to achieve campus level outcomes.
3. Providing ongoing support to reduce risk and enhance protection via alternative activities, mentoring, referrals, and support groups/clubs.
4. Working to enhance access and reduce barriers by improving recruitment systems and processes to increase the ease, ability, and opportunities for students to utilize fraternity/sorority services.
5. Changing consequences (incentives/disincentives) by increasing or decreasing the probability of specific behaviors that reduces risk or enhances protection by altering the consequences for performing that behaviors (public recognition for deserved behavior, chapter/council rewards, or loss of privileges).
6. Changing the physical design or structure of the environment to reduce risk or enhance protection during social events or even campus design.
7. Modifying/changing policies with a formal change in chapter/council procedures, bylaws, or rules, including public policy actions and systems change within government, communities, and organizations.
