A Force for Positive Change

In response to Theta Tau incident at Syracuse University: Like so many, we are disgusted by the hateful demonstration of racism, homophobia, anti-Semitism and misogyny displayed by Theta Tau at Syracuse University. While Theta Tau co-ed professional engineering fraternity is not in any way affiliated with the North-American Interfraternity Conference nor is this chapter a member of the Syracuse Interfraternity Council, the actions of this group serve as another reminder that incidents of hate are occurring all too often at colleges across the country. Campus communities should never be a place for discrimination, and we are calling on fraternity members to be a force for positive change. With their fraternal values at heart, fraternity men should be leaders in creating inclusive, safe communities across campus. We must come together to address the deeply rooted problems in university culture and...

Emily Carney, Pi Beta Phi, Arizona State University 2015 UIFI Participant, 2017 UIFI Student Coordinator  I had the privilege of attending UIFI in 2015, going into my sophomore year of college. I got increasingly anxious as my session approached, as I had no idea what was in store. As a newer member of my chapter, I was eager to get involved, but was lacking the tools to be an effective servant leader. I was highly intimidated to be around such outstanding leaders, while I had limited experiences. This was especially the case when we discussed the concept of ritual....
