COVID-19 Statement

The international spread of COVID-19 in our communities has shuttered most of the colleges and Universities and changed the daily routines of all Zeta Psi members worldwide. Zeta Psi is committed to supporting our chapters, individual members, and communities in any way possible during this emergency.

Please reference this page for general recommendations on chapter operations, but above all else be sure to follow specific advisories issued by your campus or local, state/province, and national health authorities. Thank you for everything you are doing to help “flatten the curve.”

Update for 04/15:

Active Chapter Operations

  • Active chapters are meeting via video conference on a regular basis and are expected to continue these interactions past the end of the normal academic year. New members should be fully integrated into chapter operations.
  • As the academic period draws to a close, members are encouraged to focus on their studies.

  • While many activities have been disrupted, there are still ongoing opportunities for brotherhood, academics, service, recruitment, and career guidance/mentoring.
