  • Notice Date: 3/17/15
  • Outcome:
    • Letter of Reprimand from 3/17/15 – 12/1/15
  • Enhancement Plan:
    • Theta Xi’s Policy Board statements will be revised to deter an incident of this nature from happening again or in the future. As of now, the Theta Xi Policy Board statements do not include statements on pre-parties or unauthorized events with alcohol at the house. While Theta Xi does not encourage this behavior, there are no specific chapter policy statements outlining consequences for an incident of this nature. The chapter will make the necessary changes to these statements and clearly outline the consequences for this sort of behavior. This will be completed by 2.23.15 with copies of the revised policy statements and the final incident report submitted to the Housing Corporation Executive Board and to the Theta Xi National Headquarters with acknowledgement of both submittals sent to Greek Life no later than 3/31/15.

Topics of discussion included: relations between chapter and housing corp, the core leadership program, drug use, the associate member program and pre-initiation activities, personal responsibility, and specifically alcohol policies and methods to prevent future possibilities of policy violations.
    • The overall result is that the Theta Xi chapter needs to be more proactive in crisis management. The consensus was that policy positions need to be followed and that members need to actively monitor others compliance with the policies. Officers and core leaders are being held to a higher standard. A chapter meeting will be held on 3/9/15 to discuss personal responsibility by a qualified guest speaker with a follow-up for a chapter led discussion about the topic. Documentation of the speaker’s name and members attending will be provided to the alumni board by 3/12/15 and to Greek life no later than 3/31/15.
