Chi Psi Fraternity Placed on Provisional Recognition Status

June 27, 2013

Effective on May 17, 2013, the Chi Psi fraternity is placed on provisional recognition status, which is a probational status, for a period of no less than four calendar years, as a result of incidents that occurred in the Spring of 2013 involving physical and psychological forms of hazing, with some considered high-risk on a spectrum from low to high. The fraternity will appear before the University Fraternity and Sorority Review Board in one year to assess performance and determine continued recognition.

In accordance with the recognition policy, it has been determined that this chapter may participate in Fall semester 2013 and January 2014 new member recruitment activities while on Provisional Recognition status, but as a condition of the Review Board's decision, the chapter will lose one day of formal recruitment in January 2014.
