Phi Delta Theta “Taking a Stand” Against Sexual Misconduct on College Campuses

Phi Delta Theta International Fraternity will be providing sexual and relationship misconduct education to its nearly 12,000 undergraduate members located at over 190 college campuses during the 2015 calendar year. The education provided will be Taking a Stand: Preventing Sexual Misconduct on Campus, a program designed and provided by the Fraternal Health and Safety Initiative, a consortium developed by the James R. Favor Company and eight international and national fraternities to fight the most pressing social issues facing college campuses today.

The strong stance on sexual misconduct prevention is in line with Phi Delta Theta’s organizational commitment to cultivate responsible young men on college campuses. Nearly 15 years ago, Phi Delta Theta implemented its Alcohol-Free Housing policy, a policy that has both championed responsible behavior and resulted in safer environments for its members and guests. The implementation of Taking a Stand will further develop Phi Delta Theta chapters as valuable assets to the campuses and communities where they exist and empower them to fight the battle against sexual assault.

The Taking A Stand workshop is a half-day program that will be conducted at each campus with all members in attendance by the Fraternity’s staff and a selected group of volunteers during 2015 and then every other year moving forward. Additionally, the Fraternity has committed to provide additional prevention components to all of its in-person educational programs moving forward.

For more information on the implementation of this important initiative contact Associate Executive Vice President Sean Wagner.
