SigEp cares about the safety and well being of its members and wants to ensure that individuals joining our organization have the best fraternity experience possible. We are committed to eliminating risky behaviors associated with alcohol and drug use, hazing, sexual abuse and physical assault.
Risk needs to be a consideration in everything the chapter does. A risk management mindset allows brothers to prevent, avoid and minimize problems before they occur. Brothers must take personal responsibility for their actions to help ensure the safety of their fellow brothers, guests and the community.
Member safety is an essential investment in time and effort. This section provides you with SigEp’s Risk Management Policies and Procedures as well as some useful resources to help you effectively manage risk and create a safe and healthy environment for your brothers.
SigEp’s Risk Management policies embody the values and expectations of our Fraternity. All undergraduate members and volunteers are expected to abide by these policies when conducting chapter activities.

It is important that chapter officers review these policies with their alumni volunteers (chapter counselor) when they assume their position of responsibility. As chapter officers, you are not only expected to abide by these policies, but also hold your brothers accountable to them. Therefore, after familiarizing yourself with the policies, you are responsible for reviewing them with the chapter membership. It is recommended that these policies be reviewed at least once a semester as well as prior to hosting a chapter social event. By conducting these reviews, you are reinforcing the risk management mindset that will keep your chapter’s activities safe over time because you and your brothers will use better judgment in every chapter decision.
SigEp provides excellent resources to help educate its undergraduates and volunteers. Take advantage of these to educate yourselves and all brothers on the reason why it is important to adopt good risk management practices. Educated brothers make better choices! |More
