Kappa Kappa Gamma Suspends Its Chapter at Rollins College

COLUMBUS, Ohio (April 24, 2013)—It is with regret that the Kappa Kappa Gamma Fraternity Council has voted to suspend the operations, effective immediately, of Delta Epsilon Chapter at Rollins College in Winter Park, Fla.

Throughout the course of several years, many members of Delta Epsilon Chapter have participated in activities that do not align with Kappa Kappa Gamma Fraternity values. Kappa alumna volunteers and its Headquarters staff have continued to work closely with Delta Epsilon Chapter to provide the highest level of support in hopes of sustaining the chapter. However, on numerous occasions, chapter leaders and members opted to ignore this dedicated assistance, including outlined expectations.  

The Kappa Kappa Gamma Fraternity Council, in cooperation with the administration at Rollins, has concluded that the suspension of the chapter is necessary. The Fraternity’s first priority is to safeguard the health and well-being of its members, while ensuring that all members have a meaningful and values-based sorority experience. If a chapter at any time demonstrates that it is unable or unwilling to uphold the values or policies of Kappa Kappa Gamma, the organization’s leaders can and will intervene.

“Kappa does not take the closing of any chapter lightly,” said Julie Leshay, Kappa Kappa Gamma Fraternity President. “While we reached this decision with much discussion and with heavy hearts, especially given our 81-year history on the Rollins campus, we are confident this is the right course of action to protect the members and the standards of our organization.”
 
All active members of Delta Epsilon Chapter, who are in good standing, will achieve alumna status as of April 23, 2013. New members will not be initiated, allowing them to pursue membership in other Panhellenic organizations. Kappa Kappa Gamma Fraternity will monitor opportunities over the next four years to gauge the possibility of a return to the Rollins campus, when the atmosphere is deemed more favorable to support an organization centered on high ideals.
