According to the news release, “There will be internal Chapter action taken regarding individuals involved, and next steps in the matter will now be considered by the self-governing Greek Judicial Board.”

It is unclear what the nature of the investigation was and a Cornell official was unable to provide The Ithaca Voice details about it by deadline.

Knocks at the the door of the Kappa Sigma fraternity house, located at 600 University Ave., went unanswered.

The university’s statement is as follows:

The Office of Fraternities, Sororities and Independent Living has announced that operations of the Cornell chapter of Kappa Sigma fraternity, which were suspended by the national organization on November 13, 2015, are fully restored by the national organization as of December 3, 2015. There will be internal Chapter action taken regarding individuals involved, and next steps in the matter will now be considered by the self-governing Greek Judicial Board.
