Miami fraternity suspended

OXFORD, OH (FOX19) - The Miami University chapter of the Pi Beta Phi Fraternity has been suspended.

The fraternity, which is actually for women, was notified on April 30 that it is under a yearlong suspension resulting from inappropriate conduct and destruction of property at the chapter's spring formal in April.

Shortly after learning about the actions of some of its members, Pi Beta Phi placed its chapter on probation. Fraternity leadership is observing the University's decision, but has not yet determined the future of its chapter's charter.

 "The alumnae join Fraternity leadership in expressing great disappointment in the decisions of a few chapter members who have completely disregarded the values in which Pi Beta Phi was founded," Grand President Mary Loy Tatum said. "They have placed their chapter in jeopardy with Miami University and Pi Beta Phi."

Pi Beta Phi has 134 chapters and more than 330 alumnae groups in the United States and Canada.
