GAMMA (Greeks Advocating the Mature Management of Alcohol)
GAMMA is a programming group comprised of selected members from various fraternities and sororities. We are responsible for creating and implementing programs that address risk management issues such as:
- hazing prevention
- alcohol awareness
- safe Spring Break
- sex education
Additionally, we hold chapters accountable to by-laws which require each chapter to register social events if alcohol will be present. We also coordinate and assign party checkers for each registered social event in order to help reduce risk.
Furthermore, we meet the educational needs of our Greek Life students with regards to critical risk reduction and social issues. The GAMMA programming board is also an affiliate member of the BACCHUS Network.
GAMMA is composed of twelve Greek students who are selected through an application and interview process to serve on the GAMMA Programming Committee. The committee is led by one Greek student Programming Coordinator and is advised by a member of the Greek Life staff. Alleged violations of GAMMA policies may be directed to the Greek Accountability Board for investigation.
