"has been on some sort of status with the Fraternity since Fall 2005, and in poor standing since March 2011. The chapter has been on 5 statuses with Lehigh University since February 2009." Essentially, the National made the determination that the current culture of the chapter could not be reversed.
members still present on campus were informed in person that evening by
the Delta Gamma National Office, and all members received correspondence
from both Delta Gamma and Lehigh regarding the situation. During the
60 day notice of intent, Delta Gamma may not participate in any chapter
or community-wide activities, including Panhellenic Recruitment. This
includes all educational, social and community service activities.
Chapter members may also not participate in Panhellenic Council or any
other activities representing Delta Gamma.
As a fraternity and sorority community, this is never easy news.
Over the next few weeks and into the spring semester, my hope is that we
as a community support the individual women in the chapter, while
understanding the antecedents that led to the decision made by the
National Office. OFSA staff will be meeting with the women of the
chapter upon their return to campus to further discuss this. Please
understand that during this time, no activities on or off-campus should
be considered with Delta Gamma. If you have questions, feel free to
reach out to OFSA staff at x84157 or Panhellenic President Laura Belair
