UMN greek leaders, advocates say more could be done to tackle sexual assault

With the suspension of Delta Upsilon last month over sexual assault allegations and alcohol and substance misuse, renewed attention has been leveraged on the greek life community’s response to sexual assault. While University of Minnesota fraternity leaders condemn acts of sexual violence, they say they’re not adequately prepared to tackle the issue on campus. “It’s a much bigger issue than what [the Interfraternity Council] is equipped to handle,” said IFC president Simon Beck, adding that he thinks sexual assaults in fraternities represent one “bad apple” rather than a culture.
