Cornell Lifts Interim Suspension on Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity

Cornell lifted its interim suspension of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity on Tuesday, following a hearing of the Greek Judicial Board — a self-governing council that verifies and determines sanctions for violations of Greek life policies — according to a University statement.

At its April 6 hearing, the board found that Cornell’s chapter of the fraternity had held an informal gathering at its house for new and current members that involved alcohol consumption, the statement said.

The chapter has been fined and members are required to complete anti-hazing and alcohol awareness programs, according to the University.

Cornell placed Phi Gamma Delta on interim suspension Feb. 23, due to alleged reports of hazing involving alcohol. During the suspension, the fraternity was not permitted to engage in activities outside of operating its house.
