After the arrest of former Delta Sigma Phi president and current chapter house resident Gear McMillan, Cal Poly and the national Delta Sigma Phi association spoke about what would happen to the Cal Poly chapter.
According to university spokesperson Matt Lazier, the school has not chosen to impose sanctions against the chapter at this time.
“Should the continuing police investigation produce any new information, the university will determine whether any additional actions need to be taken,” Lazier said in an email to Mustang News.
When asked if the five football players who attempted to rob the Delta Sigma Phi home and McMillan would be able to take classes during the fall, Lazier could not comment due to the protection of FERPA — a national law protecting the privacy of student education records.
The university is not the only entity that could punish the Delta Sigma Phi chapter. The chapter’s national headquarters could pose sanctions — such as revoking its charter — as well.
When asked if the Cal Poly chapter’s charter would be revoked in response to the arrest, national Delta Sigma Phi executive director and CEO Patrick Jessee did not comment.
Though he did not talk about the chapter’s charter, Jessee did talk about McMillan’s membership status.
“(McMillan’s) membership has been suspended pending further investigation,” Jessee said in an email to Mustang News.
A vote of national Delta Sigma Phi’s Grand Council would be needed to revoke the chapter’s charter.
