Kappa Sigma Fraternity withdraws charter of Emporia State’s chapterOctober 1, 2012
Emporia State administrators are working with local fraternity members after their national organization withdrew the chapter’s charter.
The Supreme Executive Committee of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity late last week notified the members of the Lambda-Upsilon Chapter at Emporia State that its charter would be withdrawn for failing to maintain the standards of a chapter, which is a violation of the national fraternity’s code of conduct. The chapter has 30 days to appeal the decision through the Kappa Sigma judicial process.
In the meantime, Emporia State’s Lambda-Upsilon Chapter is suspended and cannot operate as a chapter or participate in Greek-affiliated events.
“We are hoping to engage in discussions with the Kappa Sigma Fraternity to develop a re-colonization plan for Emporia State University,” said Dr. James Williams, vice-president of Student Affairs at Emporia State.
In a memo to the Emporia State Greek community, Taylor Kriley, director of Greek Life, encouraged all chapters to review their national codes of conduct for local compliance.
