Pledge Educator's Agreement

Please read the below agreement carefully and submit electronically. Contact the Senior Director of Undergraduate Services with any questions.

  • I understand that it is my responsibility as Pledge Educator to ensure my chapter uses and abides by a written Pledge Education Program. This program should be available for review by my chapter’s Purple Legionnaire, BCA Members, Field Secretary and/or Greek Life office upon request. 
  • As the Pledge Educator in my chapter I have read and understand the Fraternity’s Risk Management Policy and understand that I am responsible to ensure my chapter’s pledge education program and activities are in compliance. I understand that alcohol is not to be provided to pledges at any time and that alcohol is prohibited from any pledge activity or event, including, but not limited to, Big Brother / Pledge Father night / reveal and events, class retreats or any pre-initiation activities. I confirm that my chapter adheres to this policy.
  • I have read and understand the Fraternity’s laws concerning hazing, specifically Sections 25.33 of the Bylaws of the Fraternity and am responsible to ensure my chapter’s pledge education program and activities are in compliance. I understand that hazing may include but is not limited to any actions or events which provide or force the consumption of alcohol, require or suggest acts of servitude, involve kidnapping or scavenger hunts, or involve physical exhaustion, emotional or mental abuse, or would in any way interfere with the person’s mental or physical ability to perform college work efficiently.  I confirm that my chapter adheres to all Phi Gamma Delta laws regarding hazing.
  • I have read and understand the Fraternity’s Pledge’s Bill of Rights. I have reviewed the Pledge’s Bill of Rights with my chapter, and I understand that it is an expectation of the Fraternity that the Pledge’s Bill of Rights will be followed. I will review the Pledge’s Bill of Rights with the pledges at the first pledge education meeting.

As Pledge Educator, I understand that I can be held legally responsible for any hazing or alcohol violations involving pledges of my chapter. I also understand that my membership in Phi Gamma Delta can be revoked for facilitating or participating in hazing or alcohol violations and for lying during an investigation. 

I understand that if I have concerns about my chapter’s Pledge Education program, I can and should consult the officers of my chapter, my chapter’s Purple Legionnaire and/or the Fraternity Headquarters.
