UF’s chapter of Beta Theta Pi Fraternity will be placed on probation Wednesday morning.

The fraternity was “subject to suspension,” and its status is changing to probation, Martin Cobb, the director of communication for the fraternity’s national chapter, wrote in an email.

The UF chapter has 117 members and 1,801 alumni, according to the national chapter’s website.

The change comes after a “collaborative process between the men in the chapter, the university and our General Fraternity,” Cobb said.

UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said she was not aware of the fraternity’s status.

Matthew Chelf, the chapter’s leadership consultant, declined to comment on the fraternity’s status, citing fraternity bylaws regarding who can speak to reporters.
