Today marks a historic day for Alpha Delta Pi! As a primer to the FHSI module announced on April 2nd, Grand Council decided to partner with Sigma Phi Epsilon to launch a new sexual assault prevention educational video and the #LiveYourOath campaign. Grand Council and SigEp's National Board passionately believed that our organizations must do our part to help end this epidemic on college campuses today.
"Grand Council is committed to an open conversation around this very important topic," International President Tammie Pinkston said. "While the issue of sexual assault is not confined to Greek organizations, we must encourage our members to engage in healthy and meaningful discussions that create and demand peer-driven change and safer environments."
Please take a few moments to first watch the address from Ms. Pinkston and SigEp's CEO Brian Warren; and, then watch the full educational video that is being sent to both membership bases today.
We encourage you to share the Live Your Oath video on your social media outlets! Be sure to tag @AlphaDeltaPi on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #LiveYourOath.
For more information and to prepare to have a conversation with your chapters, as discussed in the video from Brian and Tammie, please visit www.LiveYourOath.org and click on the Visit Alpha Delta Pi Tab.
Thank you to sister Maggie Bridges, Zeta Omciron-Georgia Tech Chapter, Beta Nu-University of Georgia Chapter and Beta Sigma-Mercer University Chapter for their help with this project.
Beta Psi Chapter at the University of Kentucky hosted country music star Deana Carter for a packed, private concert at their chapter home on campus, Thursday, March 31st.
The concert was the Grand Prize in our contest with Deana that was announced at Leadership Seminar. The Sorority teamed up with Deana, Alpha Kappa-University of Tennessee, to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities. Chapters were encouraged to raise money for RMHC and the chapter with the most money raised per sister won the private concert and meet-and-greet from Carter.
Beta Psi raised $344.01 per chapter member for a total of $86,690.92 for RMHC. Representatives from the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Bluegrass attended the concert and thanked the chapter for their hard work. The concert also garnered the attention of the press and was the top story for multiple news stations in Lexington.
We are so proud of Beta Psi for their service to RMHC. Visit Alpha Delta Pi's social media channels for pictures and videos from the concert.
Alpha Delta Pi is proud to announce our participation in the Fraternal Health & Safety Initiative (FHSI). Alpha Delta Pi is the first NPC sorority to join this initiative, a consortium of eight international and national fraternity member clients of James R. Favor & Company (JRFCo). The Initiative was created to address the most pressing social issues on college campuses today: sexual and relationship misconduct, binge drinking and hazing.
"Alpha Delta Pi believes effective prevention of sexual misconduct requires the education and training of both men and women to create a meaningful dialogue with both genders on a very complex topic," said Tammie S. Pinkston, international president of Alpha Delta Pi. "We are proud to be the first sorority to join forces with the Consortium and implement the Fraternal Health & Safety Initiative. We recognize that now is the time for our women to use their voices to address this issue. Through the Initiative's impact, we are challenging our chapters to serve as catalysts for creating safer campuses."
As mentioned at District Leadership Conference, Alpha Delta Pi will be implementing FHSI programming beginning at Grand Convention this summer. Additionally, we have a target to rollout this Initiative to 75% of chapters during the 2015-2016 academic year. More information about this programming will be forthcoming. Also, stay tuned for a major announcement in the coming weeks that will expand on the Initiative.
Alpha Delta Pi joins founding consortium members Lambda Chi Alpha, Phi Delta Theta, Pi Kappa Alpha, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Alpha Mu, Sigma Chi, Tau Kappa Epsilon and Triangle fraternities.
Please see FHSI's press release, linked below, for more information about the Initiative and the consortium. For more information on FHSI, you can visit their website and follow on Twitter.

Alpha Delta Pi recently launched a new e-learning site for chapter officers, now available at learn.alphadeltapi.org. Chapter officers should check in with their Collegiate Province Directors and Programming Directors to learn more about their training opportunities. This e-learning site allows chapter officers to learn at their own pace, and on their own time, by watching on-demand modules created to cover the essential tools of Alpha Delta Pi offices. This e-learning site will also allow chapter officers to come to DLC already equipped with the fundamentals of their office, freeing up time for critical leadership training to prepare our sisters to take on the challenges of a modern woman.
