Chicago, IL - In response to the investigations conducted by both Alpha Psi Lambda and Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, the Alpha Delta chapter of Alpha Psi Lambda Fraternity has been suspended through Spring 2021, returning to campus Fall 2021. This action is being taken due to hazing incidents that occurred during the Spring 2020 semester. 

Alpha Psi Lambda’s Standards Board and National Executive Board held a series of in-depth interviews and deliberations around the investigation into hazing allegations against Alpha Delta chapter. After careful consideration, the National Executive Board made the decision to suspend the Chapter based on the findings and recommendation of the Standards Board. The University’s investigation outcome was in agreement with this decision.

In addition to the chapter sanctions, there were multiple individual member sanctions issued.

Alpha Psi Lambda National, Inc. does not condone or tolerate any act of hazing, harassment or humiliation and it does not support the values of our organization. This incident will be used as a learning opportunity to bring awareness to the negative impact hazing brings. We look forward to the day that Alpha Delta chapter can return to campus and move forward with a safe and hazing free environment at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
