Fraternity & Sorority Life

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.

 





Interfraternity Council Suspends Social Activities and New Member Programs

The fraternity and sorority community at U-M is comprised of four self-governing councils: Interfraternity Council (IFC), Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), and the Panhellenic Association (Panhellenic).  On November 9, 2017, the University of Michigan Interfraternity Council (IFC) leaders and 26 of their affiliated chapter presidents voted to suspend social activities and new member education efforts until further notice. IFC leaders are now focused on a chapter-by-chapter assessment and charting a safer path forward for their community.
