Alpha Xi Delta Closes Chapter at Western Carolina University

Published: March 29, 2021

Indianapolis, IN – The National Council of Alpha Xi Delta has voted to withdraw the charter of its Epsilon Gamma Chapter at Western Carolina University, effective immediately.

“The decision to close our chapter at Western Carolina University was not made lightly,” said Micaela Isler, Alpha Xi Delta National President. "Unfortunately, Epsilon Gamma Chapter members have continued to violate Alpha Xi Delta's policies on risk management and observance of Fraternity rituals despite efforts to lead the chapter to a culture consistent with Alpha Xi Delta's policies and values, leading National Council to close the chapter."

The Epsilon Gamma Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta was founded in 1966 and has initiated more than 1,000 members.

Founded in 1893 at Lombard College in Galesburg, Illinois, Alpha Xi Delta inspires women to realize their potential by providing opportunities for Sisterhood, leadership, knowledge and service. The national women’s fraternity has more than 160,000 initiated members and chapters on 128 college campuses. For more information about Alpha Xi Delta Fraternity, visit
