Interfraternity Council Resolution on Human Sexuality

Whereas, the attitudes and behaviors exhibited by fraternity members of the Interfraternity Council have a direct bearing on the way the entire Greek community is perceived by the general public, and

Whereas, the Interfraternity Council realizes that there is increased consciousness of sexual exploitation, not just on our campus but in society; and

Whereas, the Greek community has demonstrated its responsibility in leadership, scholarship, community service, human dignity, and respect; and

Whereas, the Interfraternity Council is committed to advancing fraternity member awareness and sensitivity to all social issues; and

Whereas, the Interfraternity Council strives to foster an atmosphere of healthy and proper attitudes towards human sex roles, and wishes that all incidences not consistent with this be halted.

Therefore, Be it Resolved, as endorsed by the general assembly of the Interfraternity Council of California State University, Northridge on November 24, 1987, that the following statements of position on responsible promotion of human sexuality be adopted:

Be it Resolved, that the Interfraternity Council will not tolerate nor condone any form of sexually exploitative or demeaning behavior or advertising techniques; and

Be it Further Resolved, that Interfraternity Council encourages individual fraternities to adopt programming which fosters a more healthy attitude toward human sexuality; and

Be it Further Resolved, that each member fraternity of the Interfraternity Council publish material (i.e. recruitment manuals and party flyers) which reflect their sensitivity toward sexual exploitation; and

Be it Further Resolved, that the Interfraternity Council will establish a public image monitoring board, consisting of the Executive Council of the IFC, whose function will be to review and approve/disapprove all fraternity publication materials; and

Be it Further Resolved, that the Interfraternity Council will reward those member fraternities which foster healthy attitudes towards human sexuality and conversely, sanction those member fraternities which violate the spirit of the standards set forth in this resolution.
