Oxford, Ohio, July 30 – Phi Delta Theta has placed the charter of its Ohio Alpha Chapter at Miami University in escrow and is temporarily closed due to violations of risk management policies. Phi Delta Theta is committed to the health and safety of its members.
Phi Delta Theta placed the chapter on General Council probation this past fall 2017 for violations of its alcohol-free housing policy. Since then, the chapter has continued to violate risk management policies.
Phi Delta Theta will return to Miami University during the spring 2019 semester with the support of the General Headquarters, the chapter’s house corporation and advisory board, local alumni, and Miami University.
Founded at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio on December 26, 1848, Phi Delta Theta International Fraternity has 186 chapters and colonies and 95 alumni clubs across the United States and Canada. To date the Fraternity has initiated over 260,000 men into the society whose founding principles are friendship, sound learning and rectitude.
