La Unidad Latina, Lambda Upsilon Lambda Fraternity, Inc. Closes Epsilon Chapter
In the wake of an investigation conducted by the fraternity and upon careful consideration by the Board of Directors, La Unidad Latina, Lambda Upsilon Lambda Fraternity, Inc. will close its Epsilon Chapter, effective immediately. As a governing body, the Board of Directors is charged with ensuring the long term vision and direction of the organization. It is through this sense of obligation that the Board was required to consider this unprecedented scenario. There was no one incident, or action, that led to this judgement.
Over the course of several months, the Board of Directors held a series of deep and carefully considered discussions. This included a comprehensive report that considered not just the challenges currently attributed to Epsilon Chapter, but its entire history, both positive and negative. After much consideration, the Board of Directors rendered a unanimous decision.
This was not an easy decision to reach. The Board of Directors, with a sense of great sorrow and loss, had to make a decision that best reflected the interests of La Fraternidad. We will work with Hermanos of the Epsilon Chapter to help facilitate the transition during this unfortunate time.
