Psi Upsilon Suspended Following Alleged Sexual Assault

Print More

Psi Upsilon fraternity — the site of a sexual assault that reportedly occurred Sunday morning — has been placed on interim suspension, the office of fraternities, sororities and independent living announced Monday in a statement.

Aside from operation of its residence, the fraternity has been suspended effective Monday from all chapter operations and activities.

The University previously suspended Psi Upsilon’s social and new member education activities in January 2015 after an alleged incident involving alcohol and illicit substances. Previously, Psi Upsilon faced a year of judicial probation and a month of social probation after the chapter was found in violation of the University’s Anti-Hazing Policy in the spring of 2011.

In the summer of 2008, Psi Upsilon’s alumni board deactivated the chapter over concerns regarding fraternity members’ safety.

Following the alleged incident of sexual assault, the Interfraternity Council passed a measure Tuesday recommitting Cornell’s fraternities to preventing sexual assault, according to Blake Brown ’17, president of the IFC.

The measure, which received unanimous support from the IFC and its 36 chapter presidents, will require all chapters to receive training and education from Consent Ed and Cayuga’s Watchers by the end of this academic year if they wish to remain recognized as active chapters.

  1. This article is unfair and incomplete. The 2015 suspension was lifted after an investigation. In addition, most current brothers were in 10th grade and 7th grade in 2011 and 2008. What do those incidents have to do with the price of cheese?
