Health and Safety
When our members’ decisions are guided by our values and the skills they’ve learned, they make good and safe decisions for themselves and their Sisters. Here are just a few ways we make good on this promise.
We are committed to being the safest place for women on a college campus.
Leading the way in ending sexual assault and relationship violence
We provide our collegiate members and volunteers with Sexual Assault Prevention, an online program preparing members to navigate situations that involve consent, sexual assault, bystander intervention, and healthy relationships.
As a women’s organization, we believe it’s critical that our members are equipped with the tools they need to step in when they see something that doesn’t seem right, support a friend who has disclosed they’ve been assaulted, understand what a healthy or unhealthy relationship looks like, and seek help if they are a survivor of sexual assault.
Creating a safe place for ourselves and our Sisters
Every year, our members complete CommunityEdu*, an online program that equips members with the tools they need to make good decisions related to alcohol awareness, sexual assault, and hazing. Through this program, our Sisters are better able to create a healthy, safe, and empowering community.
In 2021, GreekLifeEdu was renamed and updated to become CommunityEdu.
Keeping mental health top-of-mind
With one-in-four young adults between the ages of 18-24 having a diagnosable mental illness and 75% of lifetime cases of mental health conditions beginning by age 24, our collegiate members’ mental health is a growing concern.
We provide our collegiate members with Mental Well-Being for Students, a program to help them practice self-care strategies, recognize when they or their peers are in distress, and take action to find additional support.
Preventing prescription drug abuse
Now, more than ever, college students are taking medications prescribed for conditions such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, or pain. It’s critical our Sisters have the right tools to prevent misuse and abuse, so we provide Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention—an online digital course that teaches members how to make healthy, informed decisions when it comes to prescription medications.
