At the request of UB President Satish K. Tripathi, an internal review of UB’s Greek-letter social fraternal organizations was conducted at the end of the Spring 2019 semester.
The review committee included UB administrators, faculty, staff, students and alumni who were charged with examining Greek life at UB, as well as best practices at peer universities. The committee’s report provides proactive and prudent steps the university and its Greek organizations will take in order to reduce the incidents of hazing and to promote greater accountability among students and the Greek organizations themselves.
View the committees findings and recommendations:
UB has taken a step toward hazing prevention with a new online course that tests students involved in Greek life on their knowledge about how to stay safe when participating in sororities and fraternities. All students who belong to a Greek-letter, social fraternal organization must complete the online module “Hazing Prevention 101 Course – Fraternity & Sorority Edition.” The 90-minute course requirement was implemented several weeks before the beginning of the spring 2020 semester.
