University of Oregon Fraternity Suspended Over Derogatory Document

Phi Kappa Psi at the University of Oregon has been suspended after a derogatory document with its name on it surfaced.
The document contains the fraternity’s name and the names of some of its members, followed by a litany of derogatory questions that contain homophobic slurs, sexist language, and drug references. The document violates the University’s hazing policy.
University of Oregon Assistant Dean of Students Marcus Langford said that “the entire document in and of itself is highly problematic.” Furthermore, the Phi Kappa Psi National Headquarters released a statement saying that “the messages contained in the document do not reflect the values of Brotherhood, Respect for the Dignity and Well-Being of Others and Personal Integrity. Nor do they align with expectations of Phi Kappa Psi membership. We will get to the bottom of this.”
This is the latest major fraternity or sorority 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.
These reports come amidst similar allegations that have been made against fraternities nationwide, including Sigma Alpha Epsilon at East Carolina University, who were 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.
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.
