ITHACA, N.Y. — Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity has been placed on interim suspension after allegedly committing a “serious violation” of the University Recognition Policy.
The fraternity was suspended Feb. 16 and is the second fraternity this month to be placed on interim suspension.
An interim suspension is a pause in the operations of a chapter during which the chapter may not engage in any activities other than operation of its residence, according to a statement issued by Joseph Burke, executive director of campus and community engagement.
An interim suspension is used when “details of a credible report compel the university to cease activities of the organization for the safety of the members, those joining or guests,” the statement said.
On Feb. 2, Sigma Phi Epsilon was placed on interim suspension on the same charge of committing a “serious violation” of the University Recognition Policy.
No further details have been released.
