We recently learned of a situation involving our chapter at the University of Puget Sound where individual members of the chapter were alleged to have made discriminatory statements and/or promoted discriminatory behavior during isolated events that occurred in the chapter house.
It is important to know Sigma Chi respects diversity and understands it is a source of our strength, which is why we strive to foster an environment of inclusion in each of our chapters. The make-up of our chapter at the University of Puget Sound is among the most diverse and welcoming of any fraternity in the nation. The chapter includes members of the Christian, Jewish and Muslim faiths, as well as members who are straight, gay and transgender – and is a leader in fostering a culture of inclusion on campus.
