Parents of student who died in fraternity hazing incident slam LSU's reform plan

BATON ROUGE -- Responding to the death of a fraternity pledge last fall, LSU unveiled its highly anticipated corrective action plan on Wednesday -- a list of 28 proposed changes that officials say are meant to tamp down on binge drinking and stop hazing as fraternities and sororities recruit new members.

The plan calls for banning hard alcohol at fraternity parties, requiring supervision at pledge activities, engaging with alumni to create more chapter oversight, and creating a transparency website where disciplinary sanctions for Greek organizations are publicized.

But the parents of Max Gruver, the LSU student whose death prompted the look at Greek Life on campus, said LSU’s proposal is an empty gesture.

“The report epitomizes what happens when task forces like these are comprised of members with vested interests in perpetuating the current, failed Greek Life system,” Rae Ann and Stephen Gruver said in a statement. “The end result here is a report consisting of a lot of words aimed at crafting only the appearance of reform. In reality, it proffers no real meaningful changes to Greek Life that would have prevented the death of our son, any other injuries, or sexual assaults that have plagued LSU’s fraternities.”

I agree, it failed. It's time to move on (imho).
