Phi Delta Theta Announces Support of Federal Anti-Hazing Legislation


Phi Delta Theta is a values-based organization that is committed to promoting a culture of responsibility in our chapters, and we remain vigilant in our efforts to protect the safety of our members and guests.

The United States Congress and Senate are currently considering the End All Hazing Act (H.R.3267) and The REACH Act (H.R.662/S.706) which provide greater transparency through the reporting of all hazing acts on a college campus. The Phi Delta Theta Fraternity announces its full endorsement of these potential laws and asks all members to call on their elected officials to vote in support of this important legislation by contacting their representative or senator.

Phi Delta Theta has long battled the societal issue of hazing through policy and education. In addition, the Fraternity has advocated that those found to be involved and in violation of our risk management policies will be held accountable for their individual actions and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. This includes supporting the Gruver Act enacted in Louisiana following the tragic loss of our own Max Gruver at Louisiana State University and partnering with the Fraternal Government Relations Coalition to urge the immediate passage of the aforementioned legislation.
