(BLOOMINGTON) - The charter for Indiana University's Delta Tau Delta Fraternity has been suspended after "multiple instances of hazing" within its new member education program.

A statement released by the fraternity Monday night says the Beta Alpha Chapter is no longer in good standing and is not permitted to operate in the name of Delta Tau Delta after members of the Beta Alpha chapter repeatedly violated the fraternity's risk management policy.

"There is no place for hazing in Delta Tau Delta. It is absolutely contrary to our values and will not be tolerated," said Jim Russell, executive vice president of the national fraternity. "The fraternity is clear about its expectations. While made aware of our conduct requirements, the chapter chose to ignore them during the fall 2016 semester with full knowledge the national fraternity could revoke its charter.

Withdrawal proceedings of the chapter will begin immediately.

Delta Tau Delta was first established at Indiana University in 1870 and the Beta Alpha Chapter has operated continuously since 1887.
