Phi Kappa Psi fraternity placed on provisional recognition status

Effective on June 4, 2013, the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity is placed on provisional recognition status, which is a probational status, for a period of no less than one calendar year, as a result of incidents that occurred in the Spring of 2013 involving psychological forms of hazing considered to be of moderate risk on a spectrum from low to high. Additionally, the chapter violated the terms of the Interim Suspension put in place on April 12, 2013. The fraternity will appear before the University Fraternity and Sorority Review Board in one year to assess performance and determine continued recognition.

In accordance with the recognition policy, it has been determined that this chapter may participate in January 2014 new member recruitment activities while on Provisional Recognition status, but as a condition of the Review Board's decision, the chapter will lose one day of formal recruitment in January 2014.
