Risk Management Policies (Updated 08.10.2021)
The Chapter/Colony “A” should be the main point of contact. The following situations should ALL be reported:
- Any injury to a member or guest that occurred as a result of a fraternity-related activity or an event a reasonable observer could associate with the Fraternity
- Any injury to a member or guest that occurred on fraternity property
- Allegations of sexual assault, abuse, harassment or misconduct connected with a member or guest
- Any inquiries by authorities or legal counsel regarding an incident related to the chapter/colony
Reporting must take place within 24 hours of becoming aware of any of the previous items, in addition to contacting the International Headquarters (firstname.lastname@example.org). Gather as much information as possible. This includes the names of any individuals involved, the location of the incident, circumstances surrounding any injury, any medical attention sought, and any other facts that are available. Disclose ALL facts that are known to the International Headquarters (IHQ) and other parties instructed to disclose to by the IHQ Legal Advisor.
Per Delta Chi’s Risk Management Policies, “No chapter, colony, member, Associate Member or alumnus shall conduct, participate in nor condone hazing activities. Permission or approval by a person being hazed is not a defense.”
Hazing is the antithesis of everything that we believe in as an organization and Delta Chi is committed to staying true to its values. Below you can find a list of resources to help combat hazing, educate yourself and others, and report hazing when you see it taking place.
