If you have questions about your daughter's experience, she can be your first resource followed by the local chapter advisor, then either the campus or National Support systems.
Hazing has no place in Tri Sigma and the abuse of others is a direct contradiction to the vows we commit to during every Ritual. For chapters that disregard the national alcohol or hazing policies, they will receive a Policy Violation fee which is used to risk reduction and educational program to change behaviors. In addition, chapters found in violation of national policies will face disciplinary sanctions. The status of those chapters with repeated violations will be reviewed regularly by the Executive Council. If it is determined that progress is not being made or that members fail to uphold our standards, the chapter charter will be suspended.
Tri Sigma has a strong policy against hazing. As an organization, we are proud to be a Diamond Level sponsor of HazingPrevention.org, which sponsors National Hazing Prevention Week. The purpose of National Hazing Prevention Week is to promote local campus and community awareness of the dangers of hazing.
Tri Sigma offers comprehensive chapter support services, educational programs, publications, leadership conferences and membership! Whether she is a part of the executive board or serving as a chair person, our national organization will be right beside her with opportunities for personal development. Tri Sigma also encourages its members to step outside of the organization and join other campus activities!
Centering on our theme “Sigma Serves Children”, chapters engage in a variety of efforts for the betterment of children. Tri Sigma’s philanthropy supports hospital “play therapy” programs for children at North Carolina Memorial Hospital in Chapel Hill and Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. We also stay in sync with our community by volunteering through out the year for different runs, helping out our ROTC program, volunteering at the local humane society, donating to the Boys and Girls Club, or helping another organization on campus!
