 Program Description

The Greeks Take the Lead Program is a mandatory workshop series for all fraternity and sorority chapters that are currently registered student organizations (RSOs) or are hoping to become a RSO. The Greeks Take the Lead Program serves as a way to help fraternity and sorority students feel empowered by providing further education on how they can intervene and end sexual violence in their chapters and greater community. All chapter presidents and risk managers (or another leadership member, if your chapter does not have a risk manager) participate in leadership-based interactive training, and all general members are required to choose a workshop focused on a specialized topic.

 The "Greeks Take the Lead" Program serves to:

  • Educate MSU fraternity and sorority members to promote positive social change around gender-based violence in their communities.
  • Shift attitudes, beliefs, behaviors and norms on topics pertaining to gender-based violence against MSU fraternity and sorority student populations in an effort to stregthen the culture of prevention and support in their communities.
  • Build upon primary university-level prevention programming completed by MSU fraternity and sorority members to explore topics in gender-based violence specific to their experiences.
  • Center equity in progammatic efforts so that they are relevant to and reflective of the experiences of various communities and identity groups in MSU fraternity and sorority life.

Accommodations are available for individuals who believe that attending a session about gender-based violence prevention will be too difficult for them given past experiences. Accommodations can be accessed through the registration form or through contacting gttl@msu.edu directly. Please note that the gttl@msu.edu inbox is monitored by Prevention, Outreach and Education staff who are exempt resources on campus, meaning that they are not required to file a report of any instances of gender-based violence that they learn about.

If you have additional questions, comments, or concerns, please reach out to gttl@msu.edu. We look forward to having you all in attendance!
