on the value of respect for self and others. SigEp expects its chapters and members to act in
accordance with these values and does not tolerate the type of behavior described in these
Due to the seriousness of these allegations and the sensitive nature of the investigation, SigEp
has directed our chapter at University of Texas at Arlington to indefinitely cease and desist
operations. The cease and desist, issued on September 11, 2013 applies to all fraternity
programming but does not represent either closure or suspension of the chapter. Further, the
cease and desist does not affect the lease agreements for tenants of 705 South Davis Drive.
SigEp is working to support the ongoing investigation, and a representative of the National
Fraternity staff visited with members of the UT Arlington administration on campus this week.
SigEp will bring additional sanctions against any member whose conduct is determined to be
inconsistent with the Fraternity`s values or Texas state law.
