Lehigh’s chapter of Theta Xi fraternity has been placed on temporary suspension pending the result of an investigation into possible risk management violations of the organization’s policy, according to the Lehigh Greeks blog.
This comes as the latest in disciplinary actions involving the fraternity, following its temporary suspension on March 4 for alleged university policy violations during the new member education process. Theta Xi’s suspension was lifted March 27 and the chapter was not formally charged.
The nature of the violations was not specified. The investigation is being conducted by the organization’s headquarters, and is a response to allegations made after a formal event at Bear Creek Mtn. Resort and Conference Center, Lehigh Greeks said.
According to the post, the fraternity may not conduct activities that could be categorized as a “Theta Xi event,” including organized events and “impromptu social gatherings of members and/or guests,” effective immediately.
The Brown and White reached out to the president of Theta Xi for comment.
The Office of Student Conduct & Community Expectations will investigate alongside the Theta Xi headquarters, and the interim suspension will remain until a formal resolution to the allegations is reached, said the blog.
