MEMPHIS, Tenn.– An Ole Miss fraternity has been suspended until 2025 in response to hazing allegations, the University of Mississippi announced Wednesday.
The Lambda Pi chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated of the University of Mississippi was notified by the university that it is suspended until January 1, 2025 in response to hazing allegations from the Spring 2020 semester.
The University Judicial Council, a board consisting of six members, found the chapter responsible for violating the university’s hazing policy.
“Hazing and related behavior that put student health and safety at risk are contrary to the University of Mississippi Creed and will not be tolerated,” the University said in a statement.
John Burrell, executive director of Kappa Alpha Psi said the fraternity has a zero tolerance of hazing and they make sure that all members are aware of that.
“Kappa Alpha Psi is in full support of the university’s enforcement of those policies, and the actions that were taken,” Burrell said in a statement.
Dean of Students Brent Marsh sent a letter to all members of fraternity and sorority life.
