AEPi at Temple University Suspended Due To Reports Of Sexual Assault, Underage Drinking & Drug Use

Alpha Epsilon Pi at Temple University has been suspended after receiving “multiple credible reports” of various illegal activities, including sexual assault, underage drinking and drug usage.
According to ABC 6, the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity was suspended on Saturday, April 21, while police investigate allegations by two 19-year-old students who said they were sexually assaulted at two different parties at the AEPi fraternity house. Police Captain Mark Burgmann of the Special Victims’ Unit announced that one of the cases involved a 19-year-old student and that case has been referred to the DA’s office for criminal charges.
Furthermore, in addition to the sexual assault allegations, the Temple Police Department is currently investigating additional reports of sexual assault, sexual misconduct, drug and excessive alcohol use that were reported at Alpha Epsilon Pi.
In response to incidents like these, fraternities such Phi Kappa Psi have made numerous changes to their code of conduct in an effort to address the issues that have arisen. In addition, schools such as Texas State have introduced new Greek Life rules to try and prevent these problems.
These reports come amidst similar allegations that have been made against fraternities nationwide, including Sigma Alpha Epsilon at East Carolina University, who was shut down for hazing and the Lamda Chi Alpha chapter at the University of Arkansas which has been accused of taking sexually explicit photographs of women without their permission.
This is the latest major fraternity suspension in the last year, as schools such as Indiana University, the University of Michigan, Ohio State University, Texas State, Florida State, Ball State, Louisiana State and Penn State have all suspended fraternities in the wake of hazing and alcohol deaths.
