University of Northern Colorado Bans Fraternity for Seven Years
The University of Northern Colorado has suspended Sigma Chi fraternity from campus for seven years for multiple policy violations.
The school officials on Monday announced the ban after an investigation led by the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance found the fraternity guilty of violating various university and student conduct policies.
According to The Tribune report, the investigation against the fraternity began in April this year after the Dean of Students Office received multiple complaints of breaking university policies including underage alcohol drinking, sexual harassment, misconduct, and discrimination.
The Fraternity’s Executive Committee (EC) also voted unanimously to close the university chapter for violating its policies on risk management.
“The actions of individuals at Northern Colorado were indicative of a culture that we simply cannot allow to perpetuate,” fraternity president Tommy Geddings said.
“The men at the chapter were not living according to the values that we hold paramount to being a man of good character. We were left with no other option than to close the chapter.”
In October, the same fraternity was suspended by Western Kentucky University and the University of Missouri for violating the school policies on alcohol with a pending investigation.
