Such proposals could put a barrier between men and women at a time when a stronger conversation about prevention is needed, said Angela Rose, executive director of Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment, a nonprofit group, known as PAVE, that supports survivors of sexual violence.

Prevention is a steadily growing part of sorority members’ education, said Julia K. Dixon, a sorority alumna who works with PAVE as an advocate against sexual assault in Greek life. A task force, recently convened by the National Panhellenic Conference, is creating materials on prevention and awareness to distribute to its sorority chapters nationwide. Sororities at Missouri plan to roll out new educational standards for members this fall.

“Sororities are absolutely a space for women educating women, as well as setting an example — setting the social tone for what that campus is like,” Ms. Dixon said.

“Campus sexual assault is not a simple problem with a one-size-fits-all solution” -ANGELA ROSE, Chronicle of Higher Education, June 19, 2015
