Student Organization Update

Published: November 17, 2020 Author: Staff reports

The Ohio University Office of Community Standards and Student Responsibility received separate reports alleging that the Sigma Kappa sorority and the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity engaged in conduct that has potentially compromised the health and safety of their respective members and the Athens community.

Details of the allegations will not be publicly disclosed to protect the integrity of the University’s investigatory process.

The University has notified both organizations’ headquarters and has subsequently issued a limited Cease and Desist order to Sigma Kappa’s Beta Upsilon chapter and Phi Gamma Delta’s Alpha Omega Delta chapter. These chapters also received notification of an administrative investigation by the University.

In addition to an organizational review, individuals found to be in violation of the student code of conduct could be subject to both criminal and/or University judicial proceedings.

The University encourages anyone who has witnessed concerning behaviors that put members of our community at risk to report specific details using this link:  https://www.ohio.edu/student-affairs/community-standards/report-incident.
