LAKERS TOGETHER: Find out how we're moving forward.
On October 31, 2018, the University announced a moratorium on fraternity and sorority chapter events with alcohol following a pattern of concerning incidents. Thus the Fraternity & Sorority Life (FSL) Task Force was formed in November 2018 to consider the strategies needed to achieve a safe, vibrant, and successful community. The two documents below have since been developed with all the information gathered by the Task Force through their outside research and 10+ committee meetings. To the left, you will find the full report and recommendation submitted to the administration, and to the right, you will find the official decision from the University regarding the future state of Fraternity and Sorority Life at Grand Valley.
GVSU is dedicated to improving the safety of students and the overall Greek experience at Grand Valley. The time and space that was created to allow the FSL Task Force to complete its work was an example of this commitment. However, we acknowledge that the process was at times a challenge for the community. As we move forward, we have great optimism about the health of our community, the higher level of accountability within, and confidence in the various initiatives which will be implemented by the FSL Staff with the support of multiple partners.
For questions or concerns related to the recommendations, contact Valerie Guzman, FSL Task Force Chair and Associate Director of Student Life.
