Executive Director of Campus and Community Engagement Joseph A. Burke issued the following statement May 24:
Effective immediately, the March 30, 2017, interim suspension of Alpha Xi Delta fraternity is lifted. The chapter is placed on probationary status for a period of three years, as a result of incidents determined to include both hazing and alcohol policy violations. The chapter will need to fulfill requirements from their national organization and adhere to sanctions from the review board. The goal of these sanctions is to educate the members about alcohol policy violations and the risks of hazing and to ensure better systems of accountability within the organization. If the chapter is found responsible for a material violation of community policies or protocol during the period of Probationary Recognition Status, chapter recognition will be reconsidered.
