Lambda Chi Alpha placed on provisional recognition status

Executive Director of Campus and Community Engagement Joseph A. Burke issued the following statement April 13:

Effective immediately, interim suspension of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity, which was imposed on February 16, 2017, is lifted, and the chapter is placed on provisional recognition status, which is a probationary status, for a period of no less than 1 year, as a result of incidents determined to be hazing with new members as well as alcohol during the new member period.

The chapter will be required to fulfill a comprehensive plan for improvement that they submitted to the Review Board. The plan includes anti-hazing education, redeveloping their new member education process, and hiring a live-in advisor. They will additionally not be allowed to recruit in the fall 2017 semester. If the chapter is found responsible for a material violation of community policies or protocol during the period of Provisional Recognition Status, chapter recognition will be reconsidered.
