The suspension of all social activities for IU Greek life will last at least until the end of the semester, according to an email obtained by the Indiana Daily Student on Saturday. 

The email, authored by IU’s Panhellenic Association and Indiana Fraternity Council leadership, detailed the specific parameters of the restrictions. No paired events will take place on or off campus, according to the email. 

Chapters found to have been violating the guidelines can be subject to a fine up to $2,000 and could face a judicial board hearing, according to the email.

The guidelines will continue to allow for certain philanthropic events. 

The parameters included in the email left open the option for an extension of the social events restriction into next semester. 

PHA included a list of action items for both the IFC and PHA to implement over the next few weeks. Some of the items include sexual assault training and a review of accountability policies.

A sexual assault was reported at Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house Oct. 31. Two other incidents of sexual assault were reported Sept. 6. One of those was allegedly at a fraternity house on North Jordan, according to an IU-Notify alert.
