TUCSON, Ariz. — The University of Arizona has cut ties with another troubled fraternity.
But this time, it’s because the group’s head office has withdrawn recognition of the student organization.
The local chapter of Delta Tau Delta has been on the university’s Tucson campus since 1959.
It was suspended from membership by the fraternity’s national headquarters July 1 for repeated violations of policies that aim to protect students from harm and for poor academic performance among new members.
The Arizona Daily Star reports that the UofA requires fraternities to be in good standing with their national headquarters in order to be recognized as a university-affiliated student group.
Delta Tau Delta is the eighth UofA fraternity since 2012 to be shut down for misconduct, either by the school or by national fraternity organizations.
