Wednesday, the Cornell University Panhellenic Council passed a new medical amnesty protocl policy in order to encourage saftey for sorority sisters.
On Wednesday the Cornell University Panhellenic council unanimously passed a new panhellenic medical amnesty protocol in effort to emphasize the responsibility that sororities have to seek medical attention in alcoholic related situations. The new protocol states that in an event of an emergency if a member of a sorority chapter calls for medical assistance immediately, the Greek judicial board will not penalize the chapter. However, if assistance is not sought immediately this could change the judicial response if violations occured. In addition, Judicials still hold the right to investigate repetitive medical emergencies. This protocol was made in hope that the health of the sisters will be held as the highest priority at sorority events.
