MORGANTOWN (AP) — West Virginia University is consulting two nationally recognized speakers in the school’s attempt to address issues plaguing its Greek organizations.
The Morgantown school says Kimberly Novak and Rick Barnes will lead a forum Monday that will focus on changing the culture around hazing, reckless behavior and other issues involving excessive drinking on campus.
The Charleston Daily Mail reports that the forum will be attended by two representatives from each of the school’s 30 fraternities and sororities as well as two Greek life councils.
Officials say the university will decide next steps following the invite-only discussion.
WVU suspended fraternity activity indefinitely following the Nov. 14 death of 18-year-old freshman Nolan Burch. He was found unconscious and not breathing at the Kappa Sigma fraternity house.
