Health & Safety Education

Through programming we inform and seek to influence our members on a personal and social level. Our commitment to alcohol education, sexual assault prevention, hazing prevention, and risk management makes Phi Gamma Delta a leader in promoting healthy decisions. Health & Safety Education questions should be directed to the Senior Director of Education.

Alcohol-Free Housing (AFH)

Phi Gamma Delta chapter house facilities and chapter properties not possessing an exemption shall be alcohol-free. No alcohol shall be present, possessed, brought onto, or consumed in or on any portion or room of any chapter house facility or chapter property. Chapters meeting the requirements of fraternity Bylaw 19.300 may acquire an annual exemption from this alcohol-free housing policy.

 Alcohol-Free Housing Exemption

Approximately 18-22% of Phi Gamma Delta’s chapters are annually granted an exemption from the alcohol-free housing requirement. Chapters applying for the exemption must meet standards for educational programming, academic achievement, risk reduction, and chapter operations. Exemptions are granted on an annual basis with an effective term of August 1 - July 31. Applications for the 2023-24 academic year are due no later than April 1, 2023.

A committee of two graduate brothers and three undergraduate brothers conducts the exemption granting process.

Alcohol Skills Training Program (ASTP)

ASTP is a discussion-based program that uses an approach to alcohol education that is non-judgmental, non-confrontational and meets members where they are in terms of readiness to change their behaviors. It acknowledges that college students drink and any steps toward reducing risk are steps in the right direction. ASTP was designed to provide drinkers and nondrinkers with information regarding alcohol use and associated negative consequences. The program also teaches skills to reduce risky use and/or abstain from use altogether.

GreekLifeEdu is an online program that addresses the critical issues of alcohol awareness, sexual assault and hazing for incoming fraternity and sorority members. By leveraging trends and incorporating multiple evidence-based learning theories, GreekLifeEdu achieves behavior change objectives and helps members practice safer decision-making. Throughout this program, students are reminded of their values and strengths, and they are challenged to consider ways to leverage them throughout different interactive scenarios.

Mental Health

Real Risk: Recognizing the Testing Points

This case-study based program utilizes real scenarios faced by our brothers in recent years. The program walks through what brothers need to know to effectively address harmful situations and prevent them in the future. It also illustrates the real consequences of poor leadership and values incongruence. The interactive format allows brothers to view facts about an incident that occurred, discuss what questions they would need to ask, to see what risk management practices may have been broken, and finally, compare their own speculations to the resultant punishment that was given.

Sexual Violence Prevention & Healthy Relationships

The Social Strengths Program offers brothers education in important topics such as healthy relationships, consent, sexual violence prevention, safe social environments and bystander intervention. The Social Strengths Program is broken into two parts: an in-person workshop and an E-Manual. The interactive program helps brothers become more aware of their surroundings and look out for their peers while equipping them to confidently support a friend in need through a trained facilitator. 

Testing Points Workshop

Testing Points, was created as a workshop for Phi Gamma Delta's undergraduate members by Aaron Boe, the Founder & lead trainer of Culture Strength. This discussions-based workshop puts an emphasis on what is most relevant and realistic in both bystander intervention and pro-active personal development for today’s collegiate men.

It takes an innovative, positively framed approach to addressing critical issues. Collegiate men will be provided with key insights and led through strategic discussions on sexual misconduct, personal relationships, how older members treat new and younger members and other key issues.
