Policies & Procedures

Policies & Procedures

Sigma Psi Zeta is a national multicultural sorority dedicated to a quality and safe sororal experience. Therefore, all existing and prospective members have the right to be treated with dignity and respect. We require all sisters and chapters to adopt and implement the following risk management policy, modeled directly after FIPG standards.

Sisterhood, human dignity, and respect serve as the foundation of risk management. Risk management means taking precautions and preparing for the well-being of each member. Hazing will not be tolerated in any form. Sigma Psi Zeta members must abide by the following:

  1. The laws of our nation;
  2. The laws of the state in which they reside;
  3. The local laws of the municipalities they operate within;
  4. The rules and regulations of the sanctioning educational institution they operate in; and
  5. The rules and regulations of this sorority

No Tolerance Hazing Policy

The act of hazing directly contradicts the purpose for which Sigma Psi Zeta was created, founded, and incorporated. We seek to support leaders, not to break them down. Hazing in any form or degree has no place in our organization.

Sigma Psi Zeta does not degrade or physically abuse our sisters, newly joined or otherwise. We give our sisters and prospective sisters the same respect that we as strong women demand. It is our belief that the practice of hazing is a typically demeaning and cruel act, and a violation of both the self and the rules and regulations of all colleges and universities. Thus, as an organization advocating the empowerment of women everywhere, we do not condone acts such as these, as it goes against the goals and beliefs of the sisterhood of Sigma Psi Zeta. 

Any pre-initiation activity shall be of a constructive nature in accordance with the purposes and objectives of the Sorority, and all forms of hazing are prohibited. All undergraduate chapters of Sigma Psi Zeta are required to review our policy at the beginning of each academic year. Those who violate the code of conduct will be expelled from the organization.

Inclusivity and Tolerance

As the sorority continues to grow, we must recognize that we have many sisters who are of varying ethnic, religious, and political affiliations. Sigma Psi Zeta is dedicated to the inclusion of all women and all backgrounds. The goal of this sorority has always been to unify women and provide a community of support. As such, our values focus on celebrating all cultures. View Here.
