SigEp does not condone any form of physical assault or fighting. We expect our brothers to conduct themselves in a manner that is respectful to themselves and others. In fact, by engaging in fighting you are jeopardizing your liability insurance coverage as well as breaking the commitment all brothers make to treat every person with respect and dignity. SigEp’s policy does not cover any brother who inflicts assault and battery upon another person. In addition, when you fight, you subject yourself to criminal and civil liability. One of the most common scenarios involving fighting is when strangers try to enter a chapter function or guests become out of control and are asked to leave. If this happens utilize professional security to help manage the situation and dial 911 to get police assistance. Do not take matters into your own hands by fighting with someone. This is the best way to handle these situations for everyone’s protection. Efforts to discourage fighting by SigEp undergraduates are well founded. SigEp’s highest number of claims– 38 percent— falls in the category of assault and battery. Don’t fight, and take appropriate actions to stop a fight without getting hurt yourself.
