Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity Ordered to Disband
Last week, members of the Alpha Rho chapter of the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity were informed by the Georgia Tech Office of Student Integrity (OSI) that the student organization will be disbanded for a period of three years.
The decision results from the findings of investigations concerning violations of the Institute’s Student Code of Conduct. In its report, OSI found the fraternity responsible for six violations, including failure to comply with sanctions imposed last fall. The disciplinary suspension will be in effect until July 31, 2017. Student organizations have a right to an appeal if they meet certain criteria in the stated time period.
Any organization ordered to disband loses rights and privileges associated with being a chartered student organization at Georgia Tech, including space reservation, event sponsorship and membership activities, among others. The fraternity will be required to vacate its chapter property by the end of the spring semester.
