TUCSON - The University of Arizona has placed Phi Gamma Delta fraternity under an interim suspension of recognition and launched an investigation into reported violations of the university's student code of conduct.
The fraternity, commonly known as FIJI, must stop all activity on the UA campus until the investigation is finished.
UA officials are investigating allegations that chapter members engaged in hazing, provided alcohol to minors and conspired to not cooperate with university officials and university police.
"The University of Arizona has a clear process for addressing student behavior that is outside our expectations for student organizations," said Kendal Washington White, UA dean of students. "Responsible Greek organizations contribute greatly to the community and the university. Organizations that choose not to adhere to our values have no place here."
The chapter will have the opportunity to respond to any findings of conduct violations. Phi Gamma Delta's national office is aware of the allegations and is working with the Office of the Dean of Students in the investigation, Washington White said.
