According to the website, the chapter is on a temporary social probation while the school looks into allegations that the sorority violated alcohol, health and safety and university policies as well as the law.
MORE ANTI-HAZING EFFORTS
With Tau Kappa Epsilon’s disaffiliation, Cal Poly is continuing a recent push to hold Greek organizations more accountable when it comes to hazing activities.
Cal Poly spokesman Matt Lazier said the university “significantly strengthened its education and prevention efforts around hazing in the past two years,” noting that the Student Affairs office launched a more comprehensive anti-hazing program in 2017 to help educate students.
“Given that increased training and attention, it is natural that we would see an increase in reporting,” Lazier wrote in an email to The Tribune on Wednesday. “We know in prevention work generally that when you engage students in education on a topic, it increases their awareness and, thus, increases reporting.”
“Going forward, the university will continue to take seriously every report we receive of hazing, in any student club or organization on campus,” Lazier added.
The Dean of Students office is also developing a new plan “to advance the university’s anti-hazing efforts,” according to Lazier.
That could include forming a campus committee on hazing prevention, adding hazing education to new student orientations and consider reducing the length of time for pledging in all Greek Life organizations, among other changes.
GIVEN THAT INCREASED TRAINING AND ATTENTION, IT IS NATURAL THAT WE WOULD SEE AN INCREASE IN REPORTING.
