November 23, 2014

Effective immediately all activities of the Alpha Beta Delta Chapter of Chi Psi Fraternity at Lehigh University have been temporarily suspended.  This action is being taken because of alleged University policy violations by the chapter and its members across three separate incidents.  Allegations include trespassing and assault motivated by retaliation; engaging in harassment and discrimination; and endangering the health and safety of students.
This interim suspension mandates that no chapter activities of any kind may occur, either on Lehigh University's campus or off-campus for Chi Psi Fraternity. 
The Office of Student Conduct & Community Expectations will begin an investigation and this interim suspension will remain in effect until the formal resolution of these allegations is concluded.   Failure to comply with the terms of interim suspension will result in additional charges.
Additionally, the Lehigh University Code of Conduct requires that students and student organizations not only know and adhere to the Code of Conduct but cooperate with the University when investigating violations. 

The alumni leadership and national officers will be contacted.  If you have further questions, please contact the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs at (610) 758-4157.
