Fraternities and sororities promise a “home away from home” to incoming members. We accept, love and care for those that choose to join us. However, for some members, this sense of belonging doesn’t wash over them when they sign their bid card. Instead, they feel as if each day is a struggle and battle to earn that acceptance and prove that they belong. A chapter or community filled with young people that feel as if they have something to prove is a very scary thing.
In this program, we will approach risk management, not from the perspective of policy. Rather, we will dig just beneath the surface and look through the lens of the human element, particularly the psychology of belonging.
1. Students will understand the mental health implications of the risky decisions they make.
2. Students will see the health implications associated with hazing, alcohol and drug abuse, and sexual assault.
3. Students will understand the importance of bystander intervention as it relates to their brothers and sisters.
