CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - A fraternity at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill has been placed on probation for a year after an investigation of alcohol-related problems involving new members.

The Chi Phi Fraternity has been ordered to hire a resident adviser, The News & Observer of Raleigh (https://bit.ly/1gBbPXZ ) reported.

Chi Phi was suspended in November during the investigation of alcohol violations and inappropriate new member activities. The chapter’s meetings, social events and other activities were canceled. Current members were allowed to live in the fraternity house.

Michael Azarian with the national Chi Phi Fraternity organization said the corrective steps will ensure that the Chapel Hill chapter complies with national standards and values.

The Chapel Hill chapter has about 55 members.

Winston Crisp, vice chancellor for student affairs, said Tuesday that the university has “zero tolerance” for activities that put students in danger.

“We value the many diverse and positive contributions that students in fraternities and sororities make as part of their educational and social experience at Carolina,” Crisp said. “At the same time, we expect all members of the Greek community to meet high standards of behavior that reflect the university’s values.”
