Psi Upsilon Fraternity Policy


Reporting of Incidents Involving Bodily Injury or Property Damage

When an incident occurs as a result of a fraternity-related activity (official and “unofficial”) or while on Fraternity property, causing bodily injury or property damage to any person, the incident must be reported to the Fraternity’s Executive Director within 24 hours. The Executive Director will determine the actions to be taken subsequently.

While reporting of all incidents involving bodily injury or property damage is required, timely reporting of incidents involving the following is critical:

  • Fatality
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Brain injury
  • Severe burns
  • Total or partial blindness
  • Amputation
  • Permanent disability
  • Multiple fractures
  • Sexual assault or sexual misconduct

The chapter must also immediately report to the Fraternity’s Executive Director:

  • Any hazing incidents
  • Any lawsuits or subpoenas served on you, your chapter, or on Psi Upsilon Fraternity by an officer of the court.
  • Any contacts by an attorney or investigator asking about an occurrence that happened at the Fraternity or involved Fraternity members.

Failure to report incidents may breach Psi Upsilon’s duty to notify our insurance carrier of potential claims and may result in a loss of coverage.
