On October 29, 2012, the Grand Council of Sigma Pi Fraternity, International revoked the charter of the Epsilon-Phi Chapter at Embry-Riddle University in Prescott, Arizona.
Epsilon-Phi Chapter was closed for violations of both Fraternity, University and FIPG risk management policies. The chapter had three alcohol related conduct issues this year and has had a chronic problem unresolved for several years.
“Sigma Pi places a high value on our chapter standards with the expectation that each chapter will conform for the benefit of their members and the International organization,” said Executive Director Michael R. Ayalon.
Sigma Pi Fraternity has resolved to hold its chapters accountable for compliance with all Grand Chapter and University policies, FIPG guidelines, new member education policies, minimum standards on chapter membership, and adherence to the governing laws of the Fraternity.
