Omega Delta Phi Fraternity, Inc. is a fraternity based on the sacraments of Unity, Honesty, Integrity, and Leadership. Recently, we’ve been made aware of allegations regarding some of our members and we are here to tell you that we take them very seriously.

As a national organization that champions volunteer leadership, we accept the task of providing quality education, resources, training, and action whilst leading by example through timely communication and cooperation.

It is because of this that we must stress our condemnation as a national organization of any words, thoughts, or actions that jeopardize any person in our communities mentally, physically, emotionally, or sexually, and have a zero tolerance policy for those that commit such acts. Additionally, we want to reinforce an environment where concerns can be addressed and will handle each and every case presented to us with the utmost empathy and cooperation with all parties involved.

A written statement only does so much and we want our actions to be the measuring stick of our commitment to this statement because it IS important, it IS serious, and requires serious action.

Omega Delta Phi adamantly opposes all behavior and attitudes that endanger any person sexually, be it physical, mental, or emotional, and we will not tolerate it.  Furthermore, any accusation that is brought to our national office will be handled with empathy and in cooperation with the university administration and/or law enforcement.

We believe that all of the Greek and student organizations nationally can work together to increase the awareness and education of sexual assault in order to fight this head on.

There will be a follow-up announcement from the national council shortly with updates and actions we are taking in addition to the mandates put into place recently in the Fall of  2018.

 

Sincerely,

The National Executive Council
Omega Delta Phi Fraternity, Inc.
