Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. --- Status Update

We're reaching out to provide you with an update regarding the status of the Upsilon Nu Chapter of  Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. at Lehigh University.  

Our office received communication from the national organization indicating that the chapter's provisional charter has been revoked and that the chapter will not transition to full charter status. The chapter is no longer recognized by the national organization and all privileges associated with such recognition are no longer available to the organization and its members. As a result, the chapter is closed. 

While the chapter had a short-lived tenure, the impact has been 10-fold across our campus community and within the local community.  The eight men that joined the organization and subsequently graduated are also the highest caliber of students one could hope to work alongside, and it has truly been a pleasure. 

This is certainly a sad moment for the fraternity, its members, and all that shared in Alpha Phi Alpha's history on our campus.  Should you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs at
