"The need has never been more urgent for people to be educated in all matters related to dignity — both the human vulnerability to being violated and the remarkable effect on people when they feel that they are seen, heard, understood, and acknowledged as worthy. "
Nine years ago, 40 national fraternity and sorority groups joined together, under the direction of Mike Dilbeck, as the Greek Video Consortium (GVC) to produce what has become one of the most powerful and effective video educational programs in recent years: RESPONSE ABILITY: A Call for Courage.
Back in 1993, Mike Dilbeck founded the GVC to allow multiple fraternities and sororities to join forces and produce educational video programs on issues common to all organizations. Since that time, the GVC has produced RESPONSE ABILITY, along with: Risky Business; Gender War/Gender Peace; FRIENDLY FIRE: Friends Hazing Friends; and GET REAL: Thinking About Drinking.
Many have now been asking, “What’s next?” What conversation are we now going to have to elevate our commitment to providing students — and ourselves — with the empowerment and tools to make good choices?
We have just launched the 6th production of the GVC: DignityU. This project champions a value that can solve most of our behavioral problems: human dignity. When people act with dignity in their own behavior and honor other people's dignity, acts of conflict or degradation are avoided. Dignity is a value we should demand in every interaction to affect positive change in our community.
We are bringing this conversation around dignity to the college/university community with a compelling, engaging and empowering program — not one that points the finger at students but one that will have our students consider dignity as an essential value in life and one that is to be always honored and respected.
We are inviting your organization to be an Official Sponsor of this project and to be included in an exclusive group. For a sponsorship fee (see tiers below), your organization will be listed as an Official Sponsor and will have exclusive access to the benefits outlined below.
"Supporting DignityU is a natural extension of our business, as helping our clients create a positive and productive culture of mutual respect and human dignity within their communities is essential for the long term vitality and health of the entire system. "
"Many of society's current problems can be fundamentally linked to the disrespect for another person's dignity. We expect this new program will be directly applicable to our mission of developing ethical leaders and expect it to specifically tackle issues related to the deterioration of civil and respectful discourse on campus, online, and in society in general."
"Sigma Delta Tau is about empowering women. This program will help empower our members to be better individuals and treat others as everyone should be treated, with dignity and respect. We are excited to bring this new and innovative program to our members. "
"Kappa Kappa Gamma expects its member to promote integrity, respect and appreciation for individuality. We believe that by focusing strongly on Human Dignity, our members will gain valuable lessons on integrity and authenticity which should be the priority in any relationship. Having worked with Mike Dilbeck in the past, we know that the product will hold great value for our members."
