LFE Closes Chapter at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
Following an investigation conducted by the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, the university on Thursday withdrew recognition of the Lambda Phi Epsilon chapter on their campus after determining that the chapter was engaged in hazing. The Board of Directors of Lambda Phi Epsilon voted to withdraw the chapter’s charter a short time later.
Hazing runs counter to the principles and values of Lambda Phi Epsilon and will not be tolerated in any way, shape or form. While the loss of a chapter is painful, the safety of our members and the larger community is paramount.
James Gaffney, Executive Director
