For purposes of the following rules, the word fraternity shall include 1
all social fraternities and sororities. '




1. Beginning the second semester 1954-55, any social fraternity whose ;
actives and pledges fail to earn a combined 2.0 average shall be 1
placed on academic probation for one semester with suSpension of 1
social privileges for that period. .



If the fraternity on academic probation fails to earn the required
2.0 average, it shall be continued on academic probation for a second
semester with continued suspension of social privileges and with

any advisory action which the Dean of Men or Dean of Women may

deem appropriate.




Minutes of the University Faculty, January 10. 1955

3. If the fraternity fails to meet the academic requirements for a
second consecutive semester, it shall be denied all rush, pledge.
and social privileges for the third semester and shall be subject
to any other disciplinary action which the Dean of Men or Dean
of Women may deem appropriate.

4. If a fraternity fails to meet the academic requirements for three
consecutive semesters, all fraternity functions will be suspended
and the Dean of Men or Dean of Women may request a review of its
status by a faculty committee to consider revocation of the chapter's

the Dean of Men and the Dean of Women. The Dean of Men may refer
a fraternity violation to the Regulations Committee of the Inter-

Council for the same purposes.

6. Final decisions respecting the renewal of pledging and initiation
privileges denied a fraternity or sorority and the extreme penalty
of revocation of a charter shall be made by the University Faculty

Dean of Men or the Dean of Women. These requirements and penalties
