POLICIES & STATEMENTS

Statement on Hazing

Leading women don't haze.

‚Äč

Kappa Alpha Theta seeks to promote a high standard of excellence in all aspects of Fraternity life and prides itself on acting as a leader within the Greek community. Risk management policies are in place to protect our Fraternity's rich history, but more importantly, the well-being of our members. The goals of Kappa Alpha Theta membership include, but are not limited to, the preparation of a woman to accept the responsibilities of Fraternity membership and the encouragement of a woman's personal development to meet the demands of a mature life. In accordance with these goals, Kappa Alpha Theta does not tolerate any acts that may be construed as hazing.

Risk Prevention Policies

Kappa Alpha Theta is committed to educating our college chapters on how to minimize risk and manage risky behavior. One of the Fraternity's three aims is socially, the widest influence for good. By adhering to the Fraternity's risk management policies, members ensure they are representing the Fraternity's high ideals. As members of FIPG, all Theta chapters must comply with the policies and procedures noted by FIPG. Some specific policies to note are:

  • No chapter funds can be used to purchase alcohol.

  • No alcoholic beverages can be stored, served, or consumed on Theta property or otherwise designated for regular use by members of the Fraternity.

  • All recruitment activities associated with a chapter must be non-alcoholic.

  • No Theta chapters can sponsor an event with an alcohol distributor or bar.

  • A chapter cannot sponsor or co-sponsor an event that involves the sale, distribution, or availability of alcoholic beverages.

Statement of Inclusion

We, the members of Kappa Alpha Theta Beta Lambda, believe that diversity and inclusion are fundamental elements of our fraternity's mission to promote solidarity and leadership among women. We reaffirm our commitment to fostering a welcoming and receptive environment for potential new members from diverse backgrounds and experiences. We believe that there is no single way to define the experience of being a woman. As such, we welcome all humans who identify as female, regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, physical abilities, socioeconomic status, sex, and sexual orientation. Furthermore, we commit to supporting the needs of a diverse group of young women, which begins with respect and acceptance. Though individually different, we seek to find strength in our solidarity and embrace each other's unique perspectives. We, the members of Kappa Alpha Theta Beta Lambda, declare our unending dedication to promote a broad view of what it means to be a Greek woman.
