KSU Greek Affairs Policies

The Kansas State University Greek Community is governed by a series of policies covering Substance Abuse, Hazing, Dry Rush, and Human Rights. Each semester, chapters reaffirm their intent to abide by these standards of brotherhood and sisterhood.

Substance Abuse Policy: This policy was first implemented in 1991 and is examined and, if needed, revised each year. This policy provides chapters guidelines to responsible party management. Failure to comply with the conditions set forth in the policy is subject to punishments described within the document. All fraternities have adopted a Dry Rush Policy stating that the possession, consumption, or uses of alcoholic or cereal malt beverages during an organized rush function shall be prohibited.

Anti-Hazing Policy: The Interfraternity and Panhellenic Councils have adopted this policy as a guideline for all pledging and membership programs. Hazing in any form is absolutely forbidden. Hazing is defined as any instance of physical abuse, psychological abuse, or improper obligations, requirements, or time restrictions associated with or involving new members or their activities. In addition, the Human Rights Code prohibits any form of racial, ethnic, and sexual harassment.

Dry Rush Policy: Kansas State University, in order to ensure the safety of rushees and to comply with the change in the legal drinking age, developed the Dry Rush Policy in 1987. Each semester, chapters must reaffirm their intent to comply with the policy and violations are handled through the appropriate judicial processes. The policy helps ensure an environment in which our potential members' do not have to worry about their health, safety, or the threat of peer pressure.

Human Rights Code: Kansas State University Interfraternity and Panhellenic Councils recognize and support the rights of all individuals in the Greek system and all individuals who may come in contact with the fraternity/sorority community in any way. The Councils therefore will not tolerate or condone any form of racial or ethnic harassment; harassment based on sexual orientation; sexual harassment; sexual violence; physical, mental, or emotional abuse; or any action or display which may be deemed racial, ethnic, sexual, or emotional harassment by the general public.
