KU investigates Phi Gamma Delta

LAWRENCE — A University of Kansas fraternity was placed on interim suspension Thursday, Sept. 23, pending a hazing investigation.

Marlesa Roney, vice provost for Student Success, suspended Phi Gamma Delta on an interim basis, per university code, while university officials investigate allegations of hazing at the fraternity. The fraternity was notified Thursday evening.

“The university absolutely will not tolerate hazing of any kind,” Roney said. “Such violations of human dignity are always taken seriously and confronted immediately by this university.”

The investigation will be conducted by officials from Roney’s office.

The University of Kansas is a major comprehensive research and teaching university. University Relations is the central public relations office for KU's Lawrence campus.
