Psi Upsilon Joins It’s On Us Greek Leadership Council

 

Today It’s On Us is launching a new Greek Leadership Council, a coalition of fraternity and sorority member groups committed to being a part of the solution to end sexual assault. Psi Upsilon is proud to join the Greek Leadership Council and looks forward to engaging and educating our networks on this important issue.

 

“Psi Upsilon is proud to be a part of the It’s On Us movement. Our chapters are committed to creating inclusive spaces and safe and healthy environments for everyone on campus,” said Thomas Fox Omicron ’00 (Illinois), Executive Director of Psi Upsilon. “Sexual harassment, assault, and violence have no place in Psi Upsilon Fraternity, or anywhere on a college campus, and we look forward to working with It’s On Us and our fellow Greek Leadership Council members to find solutions to these issues.”

 

The council will harness the power of national organizational structures and their reach into campus chapters to encourage policy changes that support survivors and ensure that there are strong education and engagement initiatives that empower local chapters to change the culture on their own campuses.

 

Specifically, the Greek Leadership Council will work to:

  • Engage students across the Greek system
  • Share best practices among Greek leadership
  • Develop strong collaborative messaging strategy
  • Enhance communication with schools
  • Address internal policies

 

Twelve prominent organizations have joined for the inaugural year including: Alpha Chi Omega

  • Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values (AFLV), Delta Gamma, Delta Zeta, Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Kappa Delta, Phi Kappa Theta, Psi Upsilon Fraternity, Sigma Kappa, Sigma Sigma Sigma, Zeta Beta Tau

 

Elvin Bruno, It’s On Us Campus Program Director said, “The Greek Leadership Council is a powerful force for change, and the leadership and dedication of these organizations in the fight to end campus sexual assault is crucial to our movement.”

 

Psi Upsilon: Psi Upsilon Fraternity was founded in 1833 at Union College in Schenectady, NY and serves to “moral, intellectual, and social excellence in all it’s members as they seek to inspire these values in society.” Psi Upsilon currently has 28 active chapters and colonies in the United States and Canada and over 25,000 living alumni.

 

It's On Us: Launched in September 2014, It’s On Us is a national movement to end sexual assault. The campaign was launched following recommendations from the White House Task Force to Prevent Sexual Assault that noted the importance of engaging everyone in the conversation to end sexual violence. It’s On Us asks everyone – students, community leaders, parents, organizations, and companies – to step up and realize that the conversation changes with us. It’s a rallying cry to be a part of the solution. The campaign combines innovative creative content and grassroots organizing techniques to spark conversation on a national and local level. Over the past two years, over 440,000 people have taken a stand against sexual violence by taking the It’s On Us pledge. The campaign works with over 95 partners and students on over 550 campuses in all 50 states. And we’re just getting started…
