Effective July 28th, 2014, the Grand Council of Sigma Pi Fraternity, International revoked the charter of Beta-Chi Chapter at Loyola University Chicago.
Beta-Chi Chapter had their charter revoked after Loyola University Chicago suspended the chapter for three years as a result of the chapter being found responsible for hazing new members and misconduct.
Beta-Chi Chapter will be eligible to return to campus no earlier than August 1, 2017.
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.
Sigma Pi Fraternity was founded in 1897 at Vincennes University, in Vincennes, Indiana. The Executive Office is located in Lebanon, Tennessee. The Fraternity is one of the top men’s collegiate organizations in North America, with more than 120 active chapters and colonies in the United States and Canada. With nearly 100,000 alumni and 5,500 undergraduates, our men strive for excellence by living our core values to promote fellowship, develop character and leadership, advance heightened moral awareness, enable academic achievement, and inspire service. Sigma Pi is the only Greek-letter organization with an international philanthropic program, The ACE Project, specifically designed to give back to our host institutions.
