Effective August 5th, 2013, the Grand Council of Sigma Pi Fraternity, International revoked the charter of the Eta-Alpha Chapter at Sacramento State University in Sacramento, California.
The Eta-Alpha Chapter had their charter revoked after Sacramento State University suspended the chapter for five years as a result of the chapter being found responsible for hazing new members. The chapter was unsuccessful in two formal appeals to the university asking for a reduced suspension.
The Eta-Alpha Chapter will be eligible to return to campus no earlier than fall 2018 and the Executive Office will work the university to facilitate the best time frame for an expansion effort to take place.
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. Our headquarters is located in Brentwood, 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 95,000 alumni and 5,300 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.
