GV imposes sanctions on Greek Life, cite issues within the community

Members of Grand Valley State University’s fraternities and sororities were gathered on Wednesday, Oct. 31 by Associate Dean for Student Life Bob Stoll and GVSU’s Greek Life Board to participate in a Greek Life Town Hall where administrators announced sanctions imposed on all GVSU Greek chapters. The sanctions come off the heels of Sigma Pi Epsilon’s five-year ban from GVSU last fall, and the recent two-year ban of Kappa Sigma.  During the town hall, Stoll cited four sanctions in a note from the desk of Vice Provost for Student Affairs and Dean of Students Loren Rullman. They include a ban of alcohol at Greek functions, an embargo of further Greek Life expansion, putting a relationship agreement between GVSU and Greek organizations on hold and the creation of a task force to investigate issues and expectations regarding Greek Life. The sanctions are currently in effect and will be until further notice.
