The 90-plus member fraternity on Feb. 25 appealed CMU Hearing Officer R. William Dunham's decision to strip the group of its rights, claiming in part that due process was not observed. Dunham suspended the fraternity for an indefinite period and declared that the suspension would be lifted if, among other things, the national chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon revoked the fl* Ei£ _J,f,l1er from ,98S Win!er Semester to the beginning of tne 1987 Fall Semester. In the five-page decision. Abel modified the criteria for liftng or the suspension. The decision states the vice president for ■Student Affairs be encouraged to lift the suspension at the beginning of Fall 1987 if the "national office of Sigma Phi Fpsi- lon revokes or suspends the charter.or taken action which the vice-president for Student Affairs deems to be the equivalent of such revocation or suspension." Abel, in the statement, said that part of the sanction was a "recommendation, a way the local Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter can be reinstated as a registered student organization at CMU within the shortest possible time." Sig Ep President John Buckles, Charlotte senior, said Sunday tne fraternity has two options: to pursue court action against the University or have the national chapter suspend the eroun's charter. ' Buckles said he met with a Sig Ep alumni board Saturday to discuss the possibility of suspension of the groups charter by the national. The charter would be kept by an alumni board and returned to the fraternity when the University suspension is "This would not be revoking the charter because that's ending the fraternity. This doesn't hurt us at all." Buckles said "I'm not sure what we're going to do yet." ♦See"Sig Eps" — page 2 UHS.
