Carolina Ladder of Risk
The Carolina Ladder of Risk educates chapters on the basics of risk management practice and policy and creates a conversation about planning safe social events. Through The Ladder of Risk, chapter presidents, social chairs, risk managers and new member educators learn how to plan safe social events while reducing their risk as a chapter. All chapters are required to participate in this program every semester.
It is the goal of OFSL-CI that every chapter will know and understand best practice risk management practice and policy, and chapters will implement safe procedures at fraternity and sorority social and new member events.
Trained facilitators deliver this program to approximately 56 chapters and 150 chapter leaders each semester.

Sexual Assault Prevention
Through peer education, campus outreach, and survivor support, the Delta Advocate program unifies the sorority and fraternity community in preventing sexual and interpersonal violence and providing an empathetic and informed response to survivors. Delta Advocates provide a non-judgmental environment where their peers can freely discuss their experiences with and the impacts of sexual and interpersonal violence, and serve as a connection to support and reporting resources on campus and in the community. Delta Advocates collaborate with campus and community partners to ensure that chapters are involved in bringing interpersonal violence prevention to the wider campus. The Delta Advocate program engages the fraternity and sorority community in open and meaningful dialogue around interpersonal and sexual violence and empowers our members to be active participants in creating a safer and more supportive fraternity and sorority community at Carolina.
History of Delta Advocates:
In Spring 2014, the Panhellenic Association, in conjunction with the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life, Student Wellness, and the Carolina Women’s Center, proposed the creation of a program to provide the Panhellenic community at UNC – Chapel Hill with access to education, support, and resources related to interpersonal violence and sexual assault prevention and response—Delta Advocates. Representatives of each of the 11 Panhellenic chapters approved moving forward with implementation for Fall 2014.
As planning began in earnest, staff from Equal Opportunity & Compliance and leaders in the Panhellenic community joined the planning group. The first cohort of 20 Delta Advocates was selected in October 2014 following a competitive application process. From November 2014 through March 2015, advocates completed HAVEN, One Act for Greeks, and an additional 18 hours of training to prepare them to serve their chapters. They receive ongoing training and support from UNC staff through their year-long tenure.
Starting with the 2016 cohort, the Delta Advocates program is expanding to include women and female-identified members of GAC and NPHC chapters.
One Act for Greeks
The mission of One Act for Greeks is to improve safety in the fraternity and sorority community and prevent sexual violence. This project is a collaboration between the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life and Community Involvement and UNC-CH Student Wellness. The goal of the One Act for Greeks 3-hour skills training is to provide fraternity and sorority members from all councils with the bystander intervention skills and knowledge to address issues in the community, especially around alcohol use and sexual violence. By first understanding the high-risk situations in our community, we explore possible approaches to intervene and prevent these situations from occurring. A minimum of 20 students are required to host a One Act for Greeks training.
The HAVEN Program (Helping Advocates for Violence Ending Now) is a collaboration between the Equal Opportunity & Compliance, The Carolina Women’s Center, The Office of the Dean of Students, and Student Wellness. It is intended to provide students, faculty or staff with tools and skills to be an ally to someone who has experienced sexual or interpersonal (relationship) violence or stalking. The 3 hour training emphasizes the importance of listening, responding compassionately, and connecting survivors to resources on campus and in the community. There are 3 options for Haven training:
• Haven For Students
• Haven For Faculty and Staff
• Haven Refresher Training: designed for any member of the UNC-CH community who has previously been Haven trained and would like to stay up to date on their skills and knowledge of University policy and resources.
UNC-Chapel Hill has partnered with EverFi, whose mission, in part, is to help educate students about sexual assault and relationship violence prevention in high schools and higher education institutions across the country. Everfi has designed an online, research-based program, also called Haven, which allows students to learn about important prevention skills and strategies. This online module is separate from the in-person Haven training.
