Plan to join your peers for a critical educational opportunity later this semester. The Summit Against Hate focuses on learning from experts in the field in addressing anti-Semitism on college campuses while also engaging in valuable conversations about how to address hate in general in today’s challenging environment. We invite all campus administrators and Fraternity/Sorority professionals to join us for a day of education and dialogue on ways fraternity and sorority leaders and campus administrators can partner to work toward ending all forms of hate on college campuses.

The 2016 North-American Inter-fraternity Conference’s Laurel Wreath Award lauded the Words to Action program, co-hosted by Zeta Beta Tau, Alpha Epsilon Phi Sorority, Sigma Delta Tau Sorority, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and Sigma Alpha Mu. Over the next couple years, the four organizations will be expanding the program to reach more students all over North American campuses.
“With rising incidents of anti-Semitism on campuses, it is important that we provide our members with the tools and knowledge to create a safe campus environment. Fraternity and sorority leaders can have a tremendous impact in addressing hatred, bigotry and discrimination. We’re proud to partner in this programming,” stated Andy Huston. “It is important that we provide our students with the training and skills to address anti-Semitism on campus.”
Feedback from the program has been overwhelmingly positive, with 92 percent of student participants rating Words to Action as “good” or “excellent.” A majority of attendees agreed that they are able to apply the teachings of the program to their own life experiences and they also feel they developed practical skills for responding to anti-Semitism.
Student responses to the program include, “I thought [the activities] were all useful and relevant to me. I learned something new today…Using scenarios and discussing them with other people was insightful…After the program, [I will] be more educated and respond from a more informed point of view.” Providing this education to members of different chapters on the same campus through this partnership is invaluable.
We are excited to continue this program and partnership. We are currently selecting the chapters and campuses that will receive Words to Action this coming academic year. Sigma Alpha Mu provides programming and partnerships to make campuses a more welcoming home for students. Learn more or get involved at www.sam.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
