At a certain point, a line is crossed, and you decide that it’s time to have a conversation and confront the negative behavior. But, it’s an intimidating thing to do. How will he react? What if he doesn’t change the behavior? What if the situation gets worse?
In this humorous, realistic program, T.J. Sullivan will help you answer the question: “Where do we draw the line?” We will discuss why it’s so hard to confront, and T.J. will provide you with practical strategies that will increase your chances of success when you get the guts to confront.

While fraternities like Theta Delta Chi often espouse missions to develop better men (e.g., improving the intellectual, moral, and social being), fraternity membership is often associated with alcohol use, hazing and other concerning behaviors and beliefs. The masculine cultures perpetuated by fraternity chapters/Charges may explain these troubling outcomes. Using research findings from a national study of nearly 3,000 undergraduate men from 76 chapters of a social fraternity, this virtual seminar will identify connections among the masculine cultures of fraternity chapters/Charges, and the alcohol consumption behaviors and hazing attitudes of members. In addition, the presenter will propose strategies related to masculinity that attendees can use to address hazing and alcohol use within their Charges

This session is an opportunity to talk, as gentlemen, about these three vital questions and their impact on recruitment and our overall organizations.
