The IU chapter of the Kappa Sigma fraternity was placed on cease and desist Tuesday for alcohol, hazing and endangering others.
Kappa Sigma returned to campus in January 2023 after the fraternity’s national headquarters withdrew their charter at IU for violations regarding alcohol and hazing in Dec. 2018.
There is currently one other IU fraternity on cease and desist, according to IU’s list of organizations on disciplinary status. Zeta Beta Tau was placed on cease and desist for hazing in Feb. 2023. There are eight organizations on suspension, five on disciplinary status, one on an interim directive and one on a voluntary resolution agreement.
According to IU's definitions of disciplinary statutes, cease and desist is a temporary measure placed upon aspects of chapter operations when there is an immediate threat or ongoing investigation. During a cease and desist period, all organizational activities come to a halt within the chapter.
