With great sadness, the Governing Council of Chi Omega Fraternity announces the closing of Iota Zeta Chapter of Chi Omega at University of Nebraska Kearney effective April 27, 2009.

After several years of decreasing membership, the chapter finds itself with too many chapter responsibilities and too few members to sustain operations. Membership in Chi Omega is for a lifetime. Therefore, our collegiate members have been given the
opportunity to have alumnae status in Chi Omega.

Chi Omega recognizes the significant contributions Iota Zeta members have made to the university since 1962. The alumnae advisers and national organization have been dedicated to supporting Iota Zeta throughout the years. The Governing Council is deeply appreciative to all those who have devoted time and talent to Iota Zeta Chapter of Chi Omega. We ask for continued support from members and those in the campus community during this time of transition.

Founded in 1895, Chi Omega is the largest women’s fraternal organization with more than 290,000 initiates and 172 collegiate chapters. Over the years, Chi Omega has provided its members with unique opportunities in leadership, scholarship and lifelong
friendship – striving to provide each Sister with a commitment to personal integrity, excellence in academic and intellectual pursuits, intergenerational participation, community service, leadership opportunities and social enrichment.

“The women of Chi O are a wonderful group of young women, and the university community wishes them well,” said Gail Zeller, UNK dean of Student Life. “The women will continue to live in the chapter house until the end of this semester.”
