Bill Nelson, associate director of the student organizations and leadership development center and coordinator for Greek programs at Kansas University, said several fraternities have made national pledges to go alcohol-free by 2000 and some local chapters also have made the commitment.
Fraternities that made the decision on a national level:
- Sigma Nu, Delta Chi, Phi Gamma Delta and Phi Delta Theta.
Fraternities at KU that decided on a local chapter level:
- Delta Tau Delta, Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Tau Kappa Epsilon.
Nelson stressed that the definition of "alcohol-free" differs from fraternity to fraternity.
