Harm Reduction

We emphasize a values-based fraternity/sorority experience that reflects the ideals set forth by our organizations’ founders.  Friendship, brotherhood/sisterhood, fraternalism, community, society, fellowship – no matter what word an organization uses, each one esteems the personal bonds that form among our members and our guests.  Part of protecting that bond is keeping one another safe.

Hazing:

Wake Forest University has anti-hazing policies that members of fraternities and sororities are expected to follow, and hazing is illegal in the state of North Carolina.  The University anti-hazing policy can be found in the Student Code of Conduct. 

Reports of alleged violations are fully investigated and appropriate actions taken.  If you believe your student is the victim of hazing, we urge you to report your concerns immediately through the Hazing Hotline (336-758-8020), the Office of Student Conduct (336.758.5226) or through submitting an anonymous Silent Witness report here.

Alcohol Use:

Because the fraternity/sorority community at Wake Forest University contributes to the social activity on campus, the University, Fraternity & Sorority Life, council executives and national organization have worked toward the creation of a responsible and safe environment for its members. All fraternities and sororities have strict policies regarding the consumption of alcohol by underage members and guests. All Greek organizations are held accountable to the University alcohol policy and social host protocols.

The University alcohol policy is found in the Student Code of Conduct. 

Sexual Assault:

Wake Forest University is committed to ensuring an academic and work environment that is free from sex discrimination (including discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression) and sexual misconduct (including sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking). This commitment applies to admissions, employment, access to and treatment in University programs and activities.  Fraternity and Sorority Life regularly partners with the Title IX Office  and the Safe Office to provide prevention and educational programs, as well as support for victims.
