Ohio University issued a limited cease-and-desist order to Phi Gamma Delta fraternity and Sigma Kappa sorority Monday night after reports that both organizations engaged in activity that violates current health and safety guidelines.

An Ohio U press release said Sigma Kappa sorority’s Beta Upsilon chapter and Phi Gamma Delta fraternity’s Alpha Omega Delta chapter “engaged in conduct that has potentially compromised the respective health and safety of their respective members and the Athens community.”

Separate reports of health and safety concerns were received by the Ohio University Office of Community Standards and Student Responsibility. 

Ohio U has begun an administrative investigation into the allegations of health and safety violations. In an effort to protect the integrity of the investigation, the university will not be disclosing any further details regarding both chapters, the press release said.

Ohio U will be conducting an organizational review into both chapters. Individuals found in violation of the student code of conduct could face university judicial proceedings and/or criminal charges.

Students who have witnessed behavior that potentially puts others at risk are encouraged to report it to the Office of Community Standards and Student Responsibility
