In August, UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp asked the Division of Students Affairs to review whether any university or fraternity policies were violated at the DKE party.

Hours after the party on August 23, DKE president Courtland Smith was shot and killed by a police officer in Archdale, near Greensboro.

Police reports stated 20-year-old Smith called 911 from his car around 6 a.m. to say he was suicidal and needed help.

When officers stopped Smiths's SUV, investigators said there was an altercation that resulted in Officer Jeremy Paul Flinchum, 29, shooting and killing Smith.

In the report released by the Greek Judicial Board, it said the Greek system's Fraternity and Sorority Standards Review Board will review the DKE chapter's recognition for completion by the end of October.

The fraternity faces a year-long social probation.

The board ultimately has the authority to remove university recognition from the chapter.
