Harassment and Gender Violence Training Update

Members of the Lehigh fraternity and sorority community participated in Harassment and Gender Violence training across the fall and spring semesters. This training was provided by the Office of the General Counsel alongside Gender Violence Education and Support in an effort to strengthen the Lehigh University community and foster an environment that is welcoming, inclusive, and safe for all.

With the training effort coming to a close, we’d like to provide you with an update.

  • Twenty training sessions were offered across the fall and spring semesters. Special thanks to the facilitators for leading this herculean effort.
  • In total, 1327 fraternity and sorority members across 32 organizations or 84.1% of affiliated students have completed the training. This exceeded our overall participation goal of 75% of affiliated students.
  • Nearly all chapters exceeded the goal and 75% or more of their members complete the training. Special shout out to these fraternities and sororities for their effort and awesomeness!!
