Lexington, Va. – Sigma Nu Fraternity, Inc. has revoked the charter of the Delta Xi Chapter at the University of Nevada, Reno, effective immediately, due to violations of the Fraternity’s law and policies, and policies of the University, including alcohol- and hazing-related violations, occurring in activities of the chapter.

The Fraternity’s decision to revoke the charter means that all activities and operations of the chapter must immediately cease. “In keeping with our mission of developing ethical leaders for society, Sigma Nu Fraternity will not tolerate such violations of its law, policies and principles,” said Brad Beacham, Executive Director of Sigma Nu Fraternity, Inc.

“We are appreciative of our strong, historic relationship with the University of Nevada, Reno and are working directly with University officials to resolve all matters related to the chapter’s status as a student organization,” Beacham added. The Delta Xi Chapter was established at the University of Nevada, Reno in 1914.

Headquartered in Lexington, Va., Sigma Nu Fraternity was founded in 1869 at Virginia Military Institute in Lexington. The Fraternity currently has 165 chapters and colonies and has initiated more than 235,000 members since its founding.
