Risk Management Policy
The purpose of our Risk Management Policy is three-fold:
- Reduce risk and liability at sorority/fraternity/council functions.
- Assist social fraternities, sororities, and/or councils in the planning and execution of safe social functions.
- Increase awareness about the level of risk that occurs at fraternity/sorority functions and to educate fraternities/sororities on best practices to reduce risk.
