This response plan is part of Minerva’s Shield, which is available in the Resource Center of a member’s MySAE account. The Eminent Archon and Health & Safety Officer should have a copy readily available. Chapters should consider incorporating specific contact information for your campus Title IX Officer as well as any relevant university or college policies within this plan to ensure it accurately reflects your institution’s process.
Remember, all members should be familiar with the plan. The chapter should periodically review the program during both chapter and executive-officer meetings each semester.
If a member is a victim, the chapter should serve as a resource, seeking assistance from the university or college counseling office or the Chaplain’s committee.
If a member is the accused person, the chapter or colony should recommend he seek professional counsel in the form of an attorney – but to reiterate, the chapter or colony should refrain from investigating the alleged incident.
Please Note: Do not attempt to handle a Title IX issue by yourself. Make your advisers and the Fraternity Service Center staff aware of the issue and let us provide you with assistance.
