GAMMA BETA CHAPTER AT THE UNIVERSITY OF UTAH

Beta Theta Pi rejects hazing as a part of fraternity life and instead emphasizes an educational experience which is morally uplifting and intellectually stimulating. The Beta ritual should be the critical ingredient of a distinctive and enduring lifelong experience of brotherhood.

 

Instruction of new members includes knowledge of the history, lore and laws of the Fraternity to prepares them for active membership. Initiation marks the beginning of many years of continued education and emphasis on living Beta's principles and obligations.

 

As part of the Positive Pledge Education Assessment (PPEA), every Beta Chapter’s member education program must include:

    •    A set of written pledge expectations and education on member expectations

    •    Positive and purposeful brotherhood building and leadership development activities

    •    Education on the values and principles of the Fraternity including the Objects of Beta Theta Pi
