The IU chapter of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity was placed on cease and desist Tuesday for hazing. This is the second time this semester that the fraternity has been placed on this disciplinary measure.
In September, they were placed on cease and desist for endangering others and alcohol.
Sigma Phi Epsilon was already on disciplinary probation effective until Dec. 15 for hazing and endangering others, according to the list of organizations on disciplinary status.
There are currently three IU fraternities on cease and desist, according to IU’s list of organizations on disciplinary status. Theta Chi was placed on cease and desist for hazing, and Sigma Alpha Mu for endangering others and alcohol.
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.
