Hazing puts IU Theta Chi fraternity on cease and desist

The IU chapter of the Theta Chi fraternity was placed on cease and desist Nov. 9 for hazing. 

Cease and desist is an interim measure placed upon certain aspects of chapter operations when there is an immediate threat or ongoing investigation, according to IU’s definitions of disciplinary statuses. All organizational activities are suspended while a chapter is on cease and desist.  

“Theta Chi has been placed on a temporary investigatory status, and their chapter leadership has already committed to collaborating with the IFC and the Office of Student Conduct to ensure that an appropriate action plan can be developed and implemented as soon as possible,” Interfraternity Council President Ethan Golde said.  

According to IU’s list of organizations on cease and desist, there are currently two IU fraternities on cease and desist: Sigma Alpha Mu and Theta Chi.  

There are currently 10 Greek houses on disciplinary status, according to the IU list of organizations on disciplinary status.  

This is a developing story and will be updated.
