IFC Community Statement November 2018 RE: Alpha Sigma Phi

On November 7, 2018  the Interfraternity Council unanimously voted to affirm the disciplinary actions issued following the Student Organization Advancement and Recognition (SOAR) review process, conducted by the justices of the Greek Activities Review Panel (GARP), against the Theta chapter of Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity. These sanctions result from a Hazing Response Team investigation that found substantial evidence of dangerous recurring practices within Alpha Sigma Phi’s new member process, including forced alcohol consumption and violent physical hazing.


As a result, Alpha Sigma Phi has been removed from the University of Michigan and the Interfraternity Council for a minimum of five (5) calendar years, effective immediately.
