Ohio University suspends Delta Pi chapter of Sigma Chi

Published: July 27, 2021 Author: Staff reports

Earlier today, a notice was sent to the Delta Pi chapter of Sigma Chi from Assistant Dean of Students and Director of Community Standards and Student Responsibility, Taylor Tackett, that the organization has been suspended from Ohio University’s campus for four years. They will be eligible to apply for reinstatement in 2025. Per Ohio University's guidelines on the reinstatement or expansion of social fraternities or sororities, the national organization will need to apply for reinstatement should they wish to return to Ohio University at that time.

After the conclusion of the University’s internal investigation process, the Delta Pi chapter of Sigma Chi accepted responsibility for the following violations:

  • D2a - Possessing/Providing False and Misleading Information: Furnishing false information to University officials or law enforcement officers acting within the scope of their job duties.
  • D8b - Hazing: Brutality of a physical nature: See University Policy 23.010: Hazing.
  • D8e - Hazing: Coerced activities: See University Police 23.010: Hazing.
