Safe alcohol consumption and social event management are hallmarks of a thriving fraternity and sorority community. Listed are policies, educational opportunities, and initiatives designed to assist the fraternity and sorority community in making healthy individual and organizational choices when it comes to alcohol management.
Bystander intervention and advocacy is an area that the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs (OFSA) is committed to the Greek and Lehigh University community. With new and dynamic programming added each year, this concept empowers students to be proactive when confronting issues of hazing, sexual assault, inclusion and social justice. We empower students in feeling to take action and intervene on behalf of their values and beliefs. For more information on Bystander Intervention Programming, please contact the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Courageous Conversations strives to enhance student's understanding of societal constructs, privilege and to increase student's belief in their ability to engage in difficult conversations, address intolerance successfully, and positively affect cultural and climate change. The current framework is developed around topics including heterosexism, genderism, and racism. For more information about Courageous Conversations or to schedule the series with your chapter, please contact Carter Gilbert at email@example.com or Malcolm McDaniel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Greek Allies is a group of primarily fraternity and sorority students (although we welcome the perspective of non-affiliated students) dedicated to inclusive leadership and fostering a welcoming Greek and greater campus environment by educating and improving awareness about the LGBT community.
New Member Orientation Sessions
Assistant Directors from the OFSA meet one-one-one with the new member educators (NMEs) for each of the chapters they advise before the start of each semester’s new member education period. During this time they review the chapter’s new member education plan and jointly tailor a new member orientation session for the chapter’s new member class. Through this initiative, NMEs will learn facilitation skills, create learning outcomes, and discover ways to engage new members. Each of these sessions is then co-facilitated by both the Assistant Director and chapter NME. These sessions include but are not limited to an overview of fraternity and sorority life at Lehigh, how to properly report hazing, and an assortment of case studies related to substance abuse, bystander intervention, etc. If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact email@example.com.
