Amendment to IFC judicial rules fails vote

In the wake of Phi Beta Epsilon’s expulsion by the Interfraternity Council (IFC), an amendment that would have required any Judicial Committee hearing resulting in suspension or expulsion of a fraternity to be confirmed by a majority vote of the fraternity presidents did not pass at the IFC Presidents Council meeting on Wednesday. The IFC did not release the vote count.

However, the IFC Executive Board, made up of the seven IFC officers, created a committee to review the IFC judicial policies and procedures to explore possibilities for improvement.

“Regardless of whether or not changes need to be made, the amount of attention and concern the judicial procedures have generated warrant a thorough review,” said Ryan Schoen ’11, president of the IFC. Schoen did not have any details on the new committee which he said is still in the preliminary stages.
