“I think it’s just one of those things the IFC in general is trying to do to, sort of, be proactive and come out ahead of this issue,” IFC president Peter Diaz said. “(Sexual assault is) not just a Greek issue, but it is definitely relevant to the Greek system.”
In January, sexual assault training was made an annual requirement for all Interfraternity Council chapters, Diaz said. Each of the 23 chapters completed either HAVEN training, One Act training or One Act for Greeks training, most well before the deadline.
Prior to the change, sexual assault prevention training was only required every other year, but Diaz said the current Interfraternity Council administration prioritized amending the constitution to say every pledge class had to do the training.
“One Act for Greeks is a program that was specifically designed to address the needs of Greeks organizations and pertain to the organizational contexts and environments in Greek life,” said Aaron Bachenheimer, the director of the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life and Community Involvement.
