Phi Delta Theta International Fraternity has separated a man from membership after learning of his alleged involvement in a sexual assault that occurred during at an unsanctioned event. As a result, the chapter’s operations have been suspended to further investigate the event.
Since learning of the incident, Phi Delta Theta officials have been working in conjunction with Baylor University officials and local alumni officers to further review the situation and will support local authorities in any way possible.
“Any action that is abusive or offensive towards women directly contradicts the values of the organization and violates our organizational policies. A zero tolerance for this behavior exists as exhibited by this action,” said Mike Wahba, Director of Chapter Services.
Founded at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio on December 26, 1848, Phi Delta Theta International Fraternity has 183 chapters and 95 alumni clubs across the United States and Canada. To date the Fraternity has initiated over 250,000 men into the society whose founding principles are friendship, sound learning and rectitude. In 2000, Phi Delta Theta became the largest Fraternity to implement an alcohol-free housing policy in all facilities.
