GREEK UNIVERSITY'S SEVEN STRATEGIES FOR COMMUNITY CHANGE ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES
Since 2015, we've been able to help create safer college campuses using the following strategies:
1. Providing information to fraternity members, sorority members, and student athletes via educational presentations, workshops, seminars, social media, The Fraternity Foodie podcast, our first book called "From Letters to Leaders: Creating Impact on Your College Campus and Beyond", and our follow up book called "From Letters to Leaders: Redefining New Member Education and Leveraging Belonging to Eliminate Hazing" available for sale on Amazon now.
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.
