Formerly Recognized Chapters
Over the years, some fraternities and sororities have lost their recognition by Lehigh University and/or by their Inter/National Headquarters as official student groups because they failed to comply with university or Inter/National guidelines.

Fraternities that have lost their recognition by Lehigh University and/or by their Inter/National Headquarters but continue to operate without University recognition, oversight or approval are considered an unrecognized groups. Unrecognized groups are not allowed to reserve or use University space, use Lehigh University's name or image, or represent themselves as an official part of the University community. Additionally, Lehigh University cannot guarantee that unrecognized groups operate with the same diligence to promote student growth and development or abide by University guidelines on recruitment, new member education, academic support, and other areas vital to the successful running of a chapter. There should be great concern regarding the well-being of students that choose to join unrecognized groups. Several chapters have recently lost university recognition. These groups may continue to operate off campus or underground.
