GREELEY, Colo. — The University of Northern Colorado is barring fraternities and sororities from participating in recruitment, initiation, parties and formals this semester after reports of sexual misconduct, drug use and underage drinking.

The Denver Post reports the temporary halt to Greek activities will allow each fraternity and sorority chapter to create a detailed safety and success plan that will be presented to UNC campus administrators at the end of the semester.

A UNC spokesman says the restrictions are to make sure there aren’t more serious consequences that come down later for chapters violating student code of conduct.

In 2018, the university suspended two fraternities after finding violations of student code of conduct. The Sigma Chi fraternity was suspended for seven years while the Delta Tau Delta fraternity was suspended for five years.
