UArizona Withdraws Frat’s Recognition Over Hazing Violations


The University of Arizona has withdrawn recognition of a fraternity for violating the school’s anti-hazing policy. According to the university, Alpha Epsilon Pi had multiple violations of the Arizona Board of Regents Student Code of Conduct.

School officials say the violations were for hazing and causing bodily harm and withdrawing recognition is the most serious action they can take against a campus group.

Last month, the university suspended Theta Chi fraternity over hazing allegations.

Alpha Epsilon Pi was founded in 1913 and has 160 active members on campus.

It can now no longer use campus facilities and resources and can't take part in university events. Fraternity spokesman Jonathan Pierce said in a statement that Alpha Epsilon Pi International intends to appeal the university’s decision.
