Effective April 8, 2013, the Grand Council of Sigma Pi Fraternity, International revoked the charter of the Eta-Nu Chapter at Towson University in Towson, Maryland.
Eta-Nu Chapter was closed for repeated violations of both university and fraternity policies.
Since 2011, the chapter has been in a suspended or probationary status for several violations of policy including disorderly conduct off campus, disrupting other chapters in the Towson community and for furnishing false information to Towson University. The Executive Office conducted a membership review in April 2012 to attempt to facilitate a cultural change within the chapter. While the chapter had made some improvements, most recently the chapter violated their university probation by not reaching the minimum score on the university Chapter Assessment Program for the fall 2012 semester. As a result of violating their probation they were suspended from campus until fall of 2014.
The Eta-Nu Chapter will be permitted to return to campus no earlier than fall 2014 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.
