Conduct Update: Alpha Chi Omega

On February 10, 2016, the Alpha Chi Omega Sorority chapter was involved in an incident in which the organization's behavior violated the Lehigh University Code of Conduct. The chapter took responsibility for the following charges:

Respect for Community I1 (Posted Rules and Regulations) Violating any Lehigh University policies, rules, or regulations, including but not limited to, residential living policies (General Provisions for Occupancy) and policies related to the use of the university computer network.

Respect for Community L1 (Failure to Report / Being in the Presence of a violation) Failure to report and/or knowingly being in the presence of violations of the Lehigh University Code of Conduct or other University Policies.

INCIDENT SUMMARY: LUPD found a student to be highly intoxicated and being helped into M&M by two other students. The intoxicated student was a new member of Alpha Chi Omega.

As a result of this behavior the following sanction(s) are imposed:
This letter should serve as a warning to Alpha Chi Omega Sorority that any future violations of the University Code of Conduct may result in more severe sanctions.

The chapter is required to complete all of the items listed in their action plan and report back on a regular basis to OFSA.

The chapter is required to present their investigative model and process to Panhellenic Council during the Spring 2016 semester.

Lehigh University is proud of it's nationally-recognized fraternity and sorority community, and it is our hope that in the future Alpha Chi Omega focuses its energy on promoting the positive aspects of sorority membership.
