News Release—For Immediate Release

Evanston, Ill.

The Executive Committee (EC) of the Sigma Chi International Fraternity has voted to immediately suspend the organization’s Michigan State chapter indefinitely. The General Fraternity made the decision due to continued accountability issues among the chapter’s leadership and membership. The actions were inconsistent with the Fraternity’s values, and the EC was left with no other option than to suspend the chapter’s charter.

Undergraduate members of the chapter have been moved to suspended active status and will be unable to participate in anything that could be conceived of as a Sigma Chi activity until 2023.

The Fraternity’s goal is to eventually return the chapter to campus; however, there is no timetable for doing so, and the organization would partner with the university to ensure that future members of the chapter would have a positive environment where could be successful in their endeavors.

Sigma Chi is one of the largest collegiate fraternities with undergraduate chapters at 242 universities and colleges and more than 250,000 alumni members. Sigma Chi provides a welcoming environment for young men of different temperaments, talents and convictions to enjoy a unique lifelong bond that extends far beyond college. Through world-class leadership training, extensive mentoring programs, and a strong focus on academic achievement, Sigma Chi sets itself apart as the preeminent collegiate leadership development organization, challenging its members to live by its core values and exemplify character-in-action™ in every aspect of their lives, and the lives of others.
