UA fraternity suspended during investigation

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The University of Arizona suspended a fraternity as it investigates allegations of misconduct.

The Fraternity and Sorority Programs Office said Phi Gamma Delta’s interim suspension of recognition from the UA is because of Student Code of Conduct violations alleging the chapter's involvement in hazing, offering alcohol to minors and conspiring to not cooperate with university officials and university police.

The fraternity, commonly referred to as “FIJI,” cannot hold any activities on campus until the investigation is complete, according to the Judicial Report.

"The University of Arizona has a clear process for addressing student behavior that is outside our expectations for student organizations," UA Dean of Students Kendal Washington White stated. "Responsible Greek organizations contribute greatly to the community and the university. Organizations that choose not to adhere to our values have no place here."

The chapter’s national office is working with the Office of the Dean of Students in the investigation, according to White. The fraternity will be able to respond to any findings of conduct violations.

As of Summer 2014, three UA fraternities are being investigated and face allegations ranging from violations of the Events with Alcohol Policy to suspected probation violations.

No sororities are under judicial review.
