Northwestern Fraternity Suspended In Wake Of Reported Sexual Assaults

Posted by


The national headquarters for Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity has suspended the fraternity’s chapter on the Northwestern University campus after allegations of sexual assault at the fraternity house were announced, officials confirmed Friday.

“They have to cease and desist all operations,” said Brandon Weghorst, SAE spokesman.

Separately, the Interfraternity Council, which governs social fraternities on campus, has suspended indefinitely all social activities for all campus fraternities, Northwestern University spokesman Bob Rowley confirmed.

The suspension of Illinois Psi-Omega, NU’s chapter of the SAE fraternity, means members cannot hold chapter meetings, attend fraternity social events or do any other activities under the SAE banner, Weghorst said. The suspension is expected to stay in place while the reported assaults are under investigation.
