Violence Intervention & Prevention (VIP)
Violence Intervention and Prevention (VIP) Program is an organization of representatives from the Stanford Greek Community who are committed to addressing the issues of sexual and relationship violence on our campus.
Fraternity and sorority representatives (aka VIP Chairs) engage with one another within a small cohort of VIP Chairs and gain the skills/training necessary to facilitate a wide range of educational programs for their respective chapter and for the Stanford Greek Community as a whole. This program was founded on the belief that Greeks can come together in their community to educate themselves on these topics and provide support to their chapter members. This program is a best practice and national model and we welcome participation from every fraternity and sorority on campus.
The VIP Program is available to any member from any Greek organization on campus to join in Winter 2023. To join, you must attend a 3-hour orientation and enroll in the VIP course. Dates/times and course information are TBA and will be announced in the beginning of Winter 2023. Attendance at the VIP Chair orientation and courses are mandatory to be in the program.
How do you become a VIP Chair?
To become a VIP Chair, enroll in the VIP course, which is open to anyone who is a member of a Greek organization on campus.
For VIP Chairs who are elected and/or selected as part of their organizations' leadership structure: enroll in the course during the first quarter of your term to be affiliated to the VIP program.
What does your Chapter gain from having a VIP Chair?

Relationships to fraternity and sorority leaders and chapters who are interested in preventing sexual and relationship violence
