University of Vermont Statement of Unrecognized Fraternity or Sorority Groups
The University of Vermont has several mechanisms for the recognition and de-recognition of student organizations. Related specifically to fraternity and sorority organizations, behavioral or procedural issues can result in the suspension or removal of formal University recognition. More specifically organizations can have had their recognition removed for various reasons, including hazing, alcohol and drug use, risk management violations, sexual misconduct and/or assault, and the failure to comply with University policies and expectations. Organizations have in most cases also had their recognition removed by the national or international organization because of their failure to uphold their stated values and clear policies. It is important to know that, at times, these student organizations continue to operate as if they have University recognition and/or national organization recognition.
The following group(s) are currently not recognized. Students are strongly discouraged from participating in unrecognized fraternities and sororities.
