Guest speakers Danny Grzesik and Aubrey Duman from Student Development said that the university is going to start posting sorority and fraternities’ current statuses and histories online. The information that will be posted online about each fraternity and sorority includes: the dates the investigation began and ended, the date the organization was charged, the date the organization’s probation ended, a list of charges and findings, descriptions of those charges, etc. Grzesik and Duman said the reasons the university will post this information online are to hold each organization accountable for their actions, to provide transparency, and because other schools are doing it. They also said that students and parents should know ahead of time of an organization’s status and history before paying to join.
Elizabeth Benn, social issues, equity, and diversity chair, said that feminine products will be available at the front desk of the library starting either before the end of this semester or during the fall.
