OMAHA - Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity has shut down the Nebraska Beta Chapter at the University of Nebraska Omaha after finding that the chapter violated Fraternity and University alcohol policies.

Following an investigation, the Fraternity’s National Board of Directors made the decision to disband the chapter, effective immediately.

In September, the Fraternity received a report of policy violations related to a social event, and with the University, ceased the chapter’s operations and launched an investigation.

Sigma Phi Epsilon CEO Brian Warren says the Fraternity must hold chapters and individuals accountable.

The university supports the Fraternity’s decision saying that ensuring a safe and positive learning environment is a top priority.
