Last week the Indiana University chapter of sorority Kappa Delta was placed on cease and desist. The university followed suit the following Monday.
IU's Division of Student Affairs maintains an online database of disciplinary actions taken against student organizations on campus. Dating back to 2016, the office has recorded 133 instances of disciplinary actions.
IU has 69 fraternities and sororities according to Student Affairs website. A total of 47 of them have been disciplined since 2016.
All but four disciplinary actions were taken against fraternities and sororities, and all but two of those fraternities and sororities belong to either the Panhellenic Association or the Interfraternity Council.
There are a number of disciplinary options IU can pass onto an organization on campus. Cease and desist is a temporary measure used during an ongoing investigation. Disciplinary probation is a warning issued in writing alerting an organization that further sanctions could include suspension or expulsion. Social restrictions bar organizations from hosting or participating in events. Deferred suspension is a period of time where an organization can appeal a sanction. Suspension requires the end of all activities and a disbanding of the organization.
Here is a look at each individual offense in the last four academic years, including the 2020 spring semester, as reported by IU Student Affairs.
