Four Iowa State Fraternities Facing Disciplinary Actions For Violating Student Conduct Codes

Iowa State sounds pretty lit, eh? This past weekend, the Office of Student Conduct Disciplinary Information at Iowa State University announced that four different fraternities were facing disciplinary actions for violating various student conduct codes.

via Iowa State Daily:

Four fraternities are currently facing  disciplinary action due to violations of the student code of conduct, according to a review of the Office of Student Conduct Disciplinary Information.

Delta Tau Delta, Adelante, Pi Kappa Alpha and Kappa Sigma broke the student code of conduct, resulting in several investigations and consequences varying from probation to comprehensive reviews.

The four fraternities got in trouble for everything from hazing to alcohol and drugs to theft. We broke down each code that was violated, fraternity by fraternity:

Delta Tau Delta

Charged with a violation of code section 4.2.11, or hazing, on Nov. 22, according to the Office of Student Conduct. The chapter is under conduct probation until May 7, 2017, and cannot recruit during the spring semester or initiate any member until the probation period is completed.

Delta Tau Delta has to contribute a chapter member/new chapter member education plan by April 3, 2017. They also must give “documentation supporting a values-based and academic-oriented community building program that supported the growth, development and learning of its new members during and prior to initiation week submitted by April 3, 2017.”

The Iowa State Daily has reached out to Delta Tau Delta and has not received a response.

Adelante

Found in violation of code section 4.2.2, misuse of alcoholic beverages and controlled substances; 4.2.26, violation of conditions of recognitions; and 4.2.31, violation of any local, state or federal law, as of Nov. 21.

The chapter is under conduct probation and social host probation until May 7, 2017. It also is required to have a comprehensive review of risk management policies and procedures by March 31, 2017.

Kappa Sigma

Found in violation of code section 4.2.2, misuse of alcoholic beverages and controlled substances; 4.2.12, disruption of rights; 4.2.19, theft or damage to property or services; and 4.2.26, violation of conditions of recognitions. The charges were filed by Sept. 7.

The chapter came to an agreed resolution to be under conduct probation and social host probation through Jan. 9, 2017. It also has to hand in a comprehensive review of risk management policies and procedures by Dec. 17.

Pi Kappa Alpha

Found in violation code section 4.2.2, misuse of alcoholic beverages and controlled substances, twice; 4.2.26, violation of conditions of recognitions, twice; and 4.2.31, violation of any local, state or federal law, on Sept. 27.

The fraternity deferred its probation, causing its conduct probation to begin on Jan. 9, 2017 and last until Aug. 21, 2017. Its social host probation will continue through Aug. 21, 2017, and social host restrictions until Jan. 8, 2018.

Pi Kappa Alpha has to complete comprehensive review of risk management policies and procedures and have a review of their new member program by March 1, 2017.

It will convert to a dry, or alcohol free, facility until Aug. 21, 2017. It also created a membership review that ensured “current members are committed to the mission and values of Pi Kappa Alpha.

 The chapter looked into establishing a live-in graduate academic adviser who would communicate the progress of the fraternity by May 2017. Also by May, the chapter needs to create a “comprehensive plan to help [the] chapter change to be more aligned with long-term objectives and communicate progress.”
