Conduct Update: Phi Kappa Theta

Effective immediately all activities of Phi Kappa Theta at Lehigh University have been temporarily suspended.  This action is being taken because of alleged University policy violations by the chapter and its members.  Allegations include endangering the health and safety of students, providing alcohol to minors, failure to adhere to medical amnesty, and failure to abide by alcohol-free conduct sanctions in place following a previous hearing.

This interim suspension mandates that no chapter activities of any kind may occur, either on Lehigh University's campus or off-campus for Phi Kappa Theta. 

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 Pennsylvania Alpha alumni leadership and Phi Kappa Theta Headquarters will be contacted and are copied on this memo as well.  If you have further questions, please contact the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs at (610) 758-4157.
