Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity at West Virginia University has been permanently suspended from campus following an investigation into an alleged hazing incident by members of the fraternity that occurred in October, according to director of Student Organization Services Ron Justice.

The organization has already been placed on temporary suspension by the University and the national organization, according to a news release from WVU.

The WVU suspension is for an indefinite period of time, Justice said.

Officials worked in consultation with the Phi Gamma Delta National Office, Phi Gamma Delta Housing Board Members and the Phi Gamma Delta Alumni Advisory Board to define the appropriate sanctions for this incident.

The national organization will meet in January and an official charter suspension is expected at that time.

The chapter members at WVU who live in the Belmar Avenue residence have been notified by the Phi Gamma Delta alumni board that they have until the end of the semester to find alternative housing. WVU officials will assist them in those efforts.

According to the news release, WVU holds education sessions with the fraternities and sororities each semester on the dangers of hazing. Officials said the Phi Gamma Delta chapter had already completed that required session.
