Murray State University has lifted its ban on Greek Life social events. Chapters can begin planning for the 2018-19 academic year. University officials outlined policy changes in a press conference Friday as a result of committee meetings over the summer. College of Business Dean Tim Todd described some highlights from a list of newly implemented changes:

“We lowered the number of attendees at social events. We increased security measures at social events. We enhanced and increased education and training.”

Murray State officials said students involvement in the new procedures and guidelines was “critical.” The Greek Life event suspension in May followed the death of a non-student in an off-campus fraternity house in April and a reported sexual assault in early May.
