Betas have undertaken a tremendous responsibility on campus to lead the way in taking a stand against sexual violence. Six Betas currently are participating in the center’s 40-hour training to become victim advocates.

“Our partnership with the RRC has been one of the most impactful aspects of my Beta experience so far. Being able to work with staff of the RRC and see the impact our fraternity has had in the lives of so many people in such a positive way truly makes me proud to be a Beta. I’m proud to be part of something so important and so new and needed in our community,” said Jackson Andersen, #2713, Vice President of Internal Programming.
