If you missed EWA’s webinar, It’s Greek to Me: How to Report on Media-Averse Fraternities, the two speakers had plenty of resources to share with reporters looking to beef up their stories with experts and nationally culled data.
These sources are recommended by John Hechinger, author of “True Gentlemen: The Broken Pledge of America’s Fraternities,” a project he took two years researching and Susan Snyder, an education reporter for The Philadelphia Inquirer who has pursued breaking Greek stories such as the hazing death of Timothy Piazza at Penn State earlier this year.
Below are the resources they recommend for comprehensive reporting on Greek organizations:
- North American Interfraternity Counci
- Opensecrets.org (has information about fraternity lobbying)
- LeHigh Greeks Blogspot
- The Clery Center
- Federal hazing legislation
- Gallup/Purdue research on value of fraternities
- Harvard School of Public Health College Alcohol Study
- University of Maine hazing survey
- Nicholas L. Syrett, “The Company He Keeps”
- FIPG Risk Manual (Insurance/Greek organization manual on rules/risks of drinking at fraternities)
- National Institute of Justice, Campus Sexual Assault Study
- Center for Fraternity and Sorority Research, Indiana University
