Lexington, Va. – Sigma Nu Fraternity was made aware on December 20, 2016, of the decision by the University of Nevada, Reno’s Office of Student Conduct to remove University recognition of the Delta Xi Chapter of Sigma Nu Fraternity for a period of 15 years.

“The Fraternity’s investigation of the activities of the Delta Xi Chapter remains ongoing,” said Executive Director Brad Beacham. “Upon completion of its investigation, the Fraternity will take whatever action may be appropriate. Sigma Nu Fraternity remains committed to its principles and to its mission of developing ethical leaders. The Fraternity has reviewed the findings of the University’s investigation and is deeply concerned by those findings, which indicate activities in direct violation of the Fraternity’s law, policies and principles.”

Headquartered in Lexington, Va., Sigma Nu Fraternity was founded in 1869 at Virginia Military Institute in Lexington. The Fraternity currently has 164 chapters and colonies and has initiated more than 235,000 members since its founding.
