BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -The LSU Greek Life Implementation Committee has released its report that includes all 28 recommendations from the Task Force on Greek Life and some additional items LSU President F. King Alexander wanted.
Alexander released the following statement:
The Greek Life Implementation Committee Report represents months of work to review and improve all aspects of our Greek community. This is not the end of the process, but the beginning of a ‘new’ normal for our campus. As we’ve stated previously, the policies and procedures outlined by our implementation committee are not stand-alone solutions but should be taken as an interlocking and comprehensive approach that is stronger than any single policy, restriction or action. Unfortunately, many universities across the country are facing similar issues, and we hope that the changes and initiatives we implement can be used as a guide for others as well. We commend the work of the committee, student leaders, faculty and staff, our Greek alumni and anyone else who participated or provided feedback during this process. We are all committed to change, and this is a major step forward for the culture shift we need surrounding Greek Life and other student organizations at LSU.
Alexander made a request in February that the committee put together recommendations for revising and updating existing policies and procedures after the death of Maxwell Gruver, 18, of Roswell, GA.
Gruver died after an alleged hazing incident at the Phi Delta Theta fraternity on Sept. 13, 2017.
