Penn State Forms Group to Address Greek Life In Response to Frat Death

Penn State has developed an advisory group that includes students, faculty and university trustees to address issues within its Greek system following the February death of a pledge.

The Centre Daily Times reports university President Eric Barron announced Monday the 17-member advisory group will provide input to the school's Greek-life Response Team, which includes university administrators.

Three members of the university's board of trustees are included in the advisory group, as well as representatives of the student Greek-life governing bodies, the University Park Undergraduate Association and a community representative.

The group is the school's latest step in taking control of the previously self-governing fraternities and sororities following the death of 19-year-old Timothy Piazza.
