New IFC Sanctions Policy More Equal
According to the Daily Collegian, on Tuesday, the IFC adopted more just sanctioning guidelines for policy violations.
Under the new uniform sanctions policy, a chapter with more members will face a larger fine than a chapter with less members, Cartwright said. Before, there was a set sanction fine for every violation, Cartwright said — each fraternity chapter paid the same fine for a violation, regardless of the chapter’s number of members.
The previous policy did not consider the financial means of each fraternity. As a result, larger chapters with greater funding streams were not as impacted by a fine as a smaller chapter may be, Wendkos said.
Equity is important, and I’m sure the smaller Greek organizations are appreciative of this change in IFC policy.
