Miami U. fraternity suspended after hazing investigation

OXFORD, Ohio (WLWT) – A fraternity at Miami University has been suspended until 2018.

In a statement, the university said “Zeta Beta Tau was found to be responsible for violations of the Miami University Code of Student Conduct related to hazing. In accordance with section 2.2.A of the code, the chapter is suspended from May 10, 2016 to May 10, 2018.”

The fraternity is now listed as “unrecognized” by the university.

“An ‘unrecognized’ fraternity or sorority is one which may choose to exist ‘off campus’ and does not follow university policies and regulations. These organizations are not permitted to use university facilities, post flyers, or have any of the privileges recognized organizations have earned,” the statement read.

The fraternity can submit a reorganization plan after Aug. 1, 2017, the university said.

Two other fraternities, Phi Kappa Tau and Pi Kappa Phi, were suspended in April. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
