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.
