University of Arizona officials have withdrawn recognition of the Kappa Sigma fraternity chapter. This is due to multiple violations of the Arizona Board of Regents Student Code of Conduct.

The university sent out a press release Friday, saying Kappa Sigma must cease all activity on campus, effective immediately. The investigation, conducted by the U of A Dean of Students Office, found that chapter members engaged in holding events with alcohol while under sanction, assaulted individuals hired to provide security and created a fund to hide activities from the university.

U of A Dean of Students, Kendal Washington White said in the statement: “This behavior is unfortunate, dangerous and not reflective of the university's values."

This is the second Greek organization at U of A to be under fire in the last month.
