Chi Omega Placed on Probation
As a result of a racially insensitive photo posted by the Penn State chapter of the Chi Omega sorority, the Governing Council of Chi Omega has placed the chapter on probation, effective immediately. Here’s a statement taken from the group’s Facebook page:
“Sisters and friends,
Please read below for an important announcement from Chi Omega.
The Governing Council of Chi Omega Fraternity placed its Nu Gamma Chapter at Pennsylvania State University on probation effective Monday, due to members portraying inappropriate and untrue ethnic stereotypes at a social function.
Chi Omega’s national headquarters staff is working closely with the university and Panhellenic Council on campus to implement corrective educational directives for the chapter.
“I am disappointed in the choices made by our Nu Gamma Chapter members and we regret any pain caused,” said Chi Omega’s National President Letitia Fulkerson. “We are taking this situation very seriously. Chi Omega does not condone behavior that violates our organization’s policy on human dignity.”
The Fraternity expects its members to share and promote the belief that self-respect, esteem, and a respect for others are necessary ingredients for healthy relationships with all members of the Penn State community.”
