Statement on Theta Sigma Chapter at the University of Central Florida

Published: November 11, 2017

Representatives of Alpha Xi Delta National Fraternity and the Chapter President of Alpha Xi Delta’s Theta Sigma Chapter participated in a meeting with the University of Central Florida’s (UCF) Office of Student Conduct this afternoon. At that meeting, we learned of allegations that have resulted in an interim suspension of the chapter. There has been no determination that these allegations are true. Per the UCF regulations governing student organizations, “[i]nterim organizational suspension is not a sanction”.

At this point, we have no information to substantiate these allegations. As UCF conducts its investigation, Alpha Xi Delta and the Theta Sigma Chapter will cooperate fully to determine if these allegations are true or not.

“Alpha Xi Delta does not tolerate hazing and unlawful behavior, and we are fully committed to working in conjunction with the University of Central Florida and law enforcement to provide any information in regards to this ongoing investigation,” said Elysia Gallivan, Alpha Xi Delta’s National Executive Director. 

Please note: Alpha Xi Delta's National Fraternity Headquarters will be closed Wednesday, November 22 - Friday, November 24 for the Thanksgiving holiday and will not be available for further comment.
