This week, members of the Gamma Eta chapter of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity were informed, both by the fraternity's national office and the Georgia Tech Office of Student Integrity, that the student organization is suspended and will be disbanded for a period of two years.

The decision results from the findings of separate investigations concerning violations of the Institute’s Student Code of Conduct and the General Fraternity’s rules and policies. Individual members are also subject to possible disciplinary action related to violations of Georgia Tech's Student Code of Conduct ranging from expulsion to dismissal of charges.

As part of the Office of the Dean of Students, the Office of Student Integrity is responsible for adjudicating violations of the Code of Conduct and the Honor Code. Any organization ordered to disband loses rights and privileges associated with being a chartered student organization at Georgia Tech, including space reservation, event sponsorship and membership activities, among others.
