UVM Police has completed its investigation into allegations of hazing and
underage drinking at a party held at the Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) fraternity
earlier this year. The investigation did not support criminal charges,
although civil violation tickets for hazing have been issued to the
officers of the fraternity.
The police report is being turned over to the Center for Student Ethics
and Standards for review and consideration for possible university policy
violations. The university judicial process, if warranted, will proceed
with a hearing to determine organizational or individual responsibility
and, as necessary, issue administrative sanctions.
The news media requested and obtained copies of the police report and will
be reporting the story beginning today.
