Welcome to another installment of our LCA 101 series, where we are breaking down each officer position to better understand how a chapter/colony operates. In this part, we will highlight the important role of the High Iota or the risk manager. Check out how the High Iota can work to manage and mitigate risk in the chapter, as it pertains to sexual violence.
- We need to know about the statistics and what data tells us:
- At least 50% of college sexual assaults involved alcohol.
- More than 50% of college sexual assaults occur in August – November. This is called the Red Zone.
- High Iotas and High Kappas should work together to create a comprehensive Fraternity Education plan that incorporates sexual violence prevention and awareness.
- High Iotas and High Epsilons can work together to plan events, train event monitors, and ensure that everyone in the chapter knows how to intervene in a variety of situations.
- Normalize it the conversations! The more we can normalize talking about sexual violence, the more we can work with our brothers to prevent an incident from happening, and take care of our brothers if something does occur.
- If an incident does occur, please leave the investigating and involvement to the professionals – try to manage rumors, maintain confidentiality and provide privacy to both the survivor and the perpetrator.
- Talk with your Coach/Specialist about your Dyad Brotherhood Survey Data! The final page of the survey contains information pertaining to the Sexual Assault Mindset of the Chapter.
