Greeks react to many serious challenges
In unrelated news, there has been discussion of ongoing University Disciplinary Committee processes that affect other members of the Greek community. Due to the confidential nature of these processes, The Tartan will not be reporting on their outcome until the process is finalized. Greek Council, Interfraternity Council, Delta Upsilon, and Beta Theta Pi would like to issue the following statement:
?The Interfraternity Council and Greek Council Presidents have gathered a committee of Greek members who are actively analyzing the current position of the Greek community, researching the policies of comparative Greek communities at other universities, and rewriting our own policies to improve safety on the fraternity quad. The over-arching goals of the Greek committee are consistent with the values of the greater campus community: to increase the safety of students and individual chapters while continuing social growth. The committee realizes the need for immediate changes and will be proposing improved requirements for guest lists and ID checks within the coming week. We would like the support and patience of the campus community as we begin implementing various shifts in policy.
?The brothers of Delta Upsilon and Beta Theta Pi have a long-standing tradition of social growth and community outreach within Carnegie Mellon. We would like to maintain the same presence on campus in the future. We feel it is inappropriate to comment on matters which have yet to be finalized.?
