Sigma Phi Epsilon Removed from IFC

The Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity is no longer a member of the Interfraternity Council, said IFC President Christopher P. Child ’06. SigEp had its charter revoked by the national headquarters of the fraternity on Jan. 28 because it was not growing in size, thereby losing recognition with the IFC.

After the planned reorganization this fall of the fraternity by its national headquarters, SigEp can approach the IFC to rejoin, Child said. An expansion committee would be formed in order to ready SigEp for the application process. The IFC Presidents’ Council would then vote on whether to admit the fraternity as an associate member. After a minimum of one year as an associate member, working with the expansion committee throughout, followed by six months as a probationary member, SigEp could again become a full IFC member.
