Theta Xi fraternity has been placed under temporary suspension due to allegations of university policy violation during the new member education process, according to the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affair’s Lehigh Greeks blog.
The allegations include “endangering the health and safety of other students and failure to follow the chapter’s approved new member education plan,” says the blog.
No chapter activities of any kind, on- or off-campus, may occur during the interim suspension – including new member activities.
Current members are not allowed to be in contact in any way with new members until further notice, says the blog. Violation of this order and the other terms of the interim suspension will result in further disciplinary action and additional charges.
A new member of the fraternity was contacted but refused comment at this time.
“The Office of Student Conduct and Community Expectations will begin an investigation and this interim suspension will remain in effect until the formal resolution of these allegations is concluded,” says the blog.
