IFC Addresses Files Charged Against FIJI and ATO

IFC LogoThere has been a lot of buzz about Fiji and ATO being charged in connection with the death of Joseph Dado. But what does the Interfraternity Council think about all of this? What’s their involvement been?

The IFC issued a press release today regarding the recent charges filed against Phi Gamma Delta and Alpha Tau Omega.

The press release stated;

At this time both Phi Gamma Delta and Alpha Tau Omega fraternities will remain under IFC suspension until the completion of criminal court proceedings.  This action is a standard procedure of the IFC Peer Review Board, which serves to adjudicate violations of IFC policy.  During this time, neither fraternity may vote in council business or host social events.

The press release also said that, after Fiji and ATO are finished with the court proceedings, both fraternities will be referred to the IFC Peer Review Board, which will determine whether or not any further sanctions need to be made in response to each organization violating the IFC Social Policy. This process is completely separate from the investigation that is currently taking place.
