BLOOMINGTON — Kappa Sigma’s governing body has pulled the charter for the fraternity’s Beta Theta chapter at Indiana University-Bloomington.
According to Indiana University Spokesman Chuck Carney, Kappa Sigma’s national office withdrew the fraternity chapter’s charter this week for “alcohol, hazing, and other violations of the Code of Conduct.”
“Indiana University is supportive of the national office decision and will support their effort in this matter,” Carney said in a statement.
In a statement to IndyStar, the national office said it withdrew the charter on Monday after receiving reports that the chapter had participated in activities that “did not reflect the values of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity which includes fellowship, leadership, scholarship and service.”
The fraternity didn’t comment further.
The chapter had seen some trouble before. According to a list of IU organizations subject to discipline this school year, Kappa Sigma was categorized as being under a “cease and desist.”
The IU list states that the chapter had all activities suspended effective Sept. 20, 2018.
Current fraternity members will be permitted to live in the Kappa Sigma house until the end of the semester. The chapter also has 30 days to appeal the decision.
