All 16 fraternities with a presence at CU-Boulder plan to participate in a training designed to address sexual violence on campus, reports the Colorado Daily. The 90-minute presentation is designed to empower bystanders to intervene when see questionable behavior.
Kevin Zell, president of the Intrafraternity Council, said that he believes fraternity members were more engaged with the subject because they requested the presentation from the university. Other greek organizations, which are affiliated with the university, were required to attend the presentation.
"I don't know that it's ever really been an active conversation that a lot of brothers participate in," Zell said. "This broke the ice. It's a conversation a lot of people are afraid to have or they feel awkward, and I'm glad it's becoming less of that over time."
