By adopting this program, we aim to empower our newest members to ... positively impact campus culture.
Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) August 30, 2012
Grand Council of Kappa Alpha Theta is pleased to announce the selection of a new wellness program for our new members. Greek-Wise is an online program that includes alcohol education, anti-hazing information, and sexual assault prevention. “By adopting this program, we aim to empower our newest members to make well-informed decisions, change perceptions, reduce risks, and positively impact campus culture,” said Amy Kates, Fraternity president.
Created by 3rd Millennium Classrooms, Greek-Wise presents non-opinionated, science-based content in an easily accessible format. Using a motivational, interactive style, the course integrates personalized feedback from participants. Selected because the program length and structure accommodates busy students’ schedules, Greek-Wise supplants Theta’s previous alcohol education program.
Kappa Alpha Theta is committed to promoting healthy living choices for both chapters and individuals. In addition to Greek-Wise, the Fraternity sponsors a mental-health initiative (Sisters Supporting Sisters), a values-based speakers bureau (Theta Talk), and is a titanium-level sponsor of HazingPrevention.org.
Kappa Alpha Theta, founded in 1870 at DePauw University (then Asbury College) in Greencastle, Ind., is the first Greek-letter fraternity for women and supports 129 college chapters and 197 alumnae groups across the US and Canada. Membership totals more than 215,000.
