SOE Opportunities - Housing

Housing SOE Description

Definition: The Housing Standard was established to create collaborative relationship between the sorority and fraternity community at The Ohio State University to promote a positive living, learning environment.   

Standard: Each chapter must attend or sponsor at least one program per year on potential risks related to their living environment.   

Program Examples: Potential topics include, but are not limited to fire safety, crime prevention, food safety, roommate relations, and personal safety (including internet safety). 

OSU Partnerships

Partner with these Ohio State departments and organizations to register for their approved programs.

  • Hands-Only CPR (Provided by OSU EMS)
    • This workshop also counts for the Safety, Health and Wellness SOE requirement, but your chapter cannot use it to fulfill both requirements simultaneously. For instance, if you count it for your Safety/Health/Wellness requirement, you cannot also count it for the Housing requirement, or vice versa.
    • If you cannot access the link above, please email osuemscoordinators@gmail.com to schedule a workshop.
  • Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) (Provided by OSU Department of Public Safety)
    • For women only
    • This workshop also counts for the Safety, Health and Wellness SOE requirement, but your chapter cannot use it to fulfill both requirements simultaneously. For instance, if you count it for your Safety/Health/Wellness requirement, you cannot also count it for the Housing requirement, or vice versa.
  • Off-Campus Housing Excellence Program Home Walk-Throughs
    • This workshop only counts for each individual who attends the walk-through and learns directly from the OCHEP representatives directly; having an OCHEP representative walk through your house does not mean it automatically accounts for all members of your organization who live there. This means that this opportunity would be difficult to engage all members of a large chapter in, but you may suggest this to members who cannot attend another Housing program.
