The Alpha Epsilon Pi chapter at IU has been given a cease and desist order, according to IU spokesperson Chuck Carney.

The cease and desist order was given Friday by IU. It is unclear at this time whether the order has to do with COVID-19 regulations. The Monroe County Health Department said they have not shut down any houses for COVID-19 offenses.

Carney did not give further information on this order.

Jon Pierce, Alpha Epsilon Pi's national spokesperson, said the national organization is working on collecting details, but could not provide more information at this time.

Alpha Epsilon Pi has been placed on probation five times since 2016. Its offenses have consistently included alcohol, non-compliance, dishonest conduct, endangering others and harassment.

However, this is the first time further disciplinary action has been taken.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
