Overview of Fraternity and Sorority Life
The purpose of the Fraternity & Sorority Life Initiatives and Action Plan is to address in concise format those changes in relationship and responsibility, which pertain to the functioning of the fraternity/sorority community at North Dakota State University, as well as offering initiatives progress updates to the NDSU administration and fraternity/sorority community.
As addressed in Article 5.6 of the Rights and Responsibilities of Community: A Code of Student Behavior, hazing is a broad term encompassing any action or activity that inflicts or intends to cause physical or mental harm or anxieties; that may demean, degrade, or disgrace any person, regardless of location, intent or consent of participants. Hazing is both against university policy as well as state law. North Dakota State University Fraternity & Sorority Life has a zero tolerance for hazing.
As outlined in Initiative 6 of the Fraternity & Sorority Life Initiative and Action Plan and Article 4 of the Rights and Responsibilities of Community: A Code of Student Behavior, NDSU Greek letter organizations must comply with all University, local, state and federal laws and policies concerning alcohol consumption.
The NDSU Code of Student Behavior identifies several values that are important to an educationally purposeful environment. These values are respect for the NDSU community and respect for the protection and rights of others.
Student leaders and organizations should always keep in mind that the use of alcoholic beverages by members of the NDSU community is at all times subject to the alcoholic beverage laws of the state of North Dakota. As such, it is the University's expectation that student leaders and organizations be responsible event planners and considers all the rules, policies and issues before putting any event plans into action. Within Policy 4.2.2 of the NDSU Rights and Responsibilities of Community: A Code of Student Behavior, registered NDSU student organizations planning off-campus closed events where alcohol will be present must complete and file with the Student Activities Office, Memorial Union 120, a NDSU Alcohol Risk Management Planning Notification Form.
