Cornell Suspends Pi Kappa Alpha, Making It The Third Fraternitiy Suspended In The Last Month

Cornell University suspended the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity last Friday, making it the third fraternity suspended by the university in just over a month. The Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life at Cornell previously suspended Lambda Chi Alpha and Sigma Phi Epsilon.

Pi Kappa Alpha, similarly to the first two fraternities placed on suspension, is forbidden from engaging in any activities other than operating its residence.

Cornell has previously withdrawn recognition from Pi Kappa Alpha back in 2010 due to a ‘history of alcohol and hazing-related infractions over several years.’ That suspension was supposed to last for four years, however, Pi Kappa Alpha was reinstated in January 2013 after submitting a rehabilitation plan to the University.

Via Cornell Sun:

“This is an example of an ideal process,” the former senior associate dean of students, Travis Apgar, told The Chronicle at the time. “It sets Pi Kappa Alpha up to move forward with activities that pertain to the fraternity’s founding principles, which is what we’re asking all our fraternities and sororities to refocus on: living up to what, at their foundation, they say they are about.”

Asked for comment on Friday, Interfraternity Council President Drew Lord ’18 pointed to his statement after the suspension of Lambda Chi Alpha, which said that Lord cannot comment on an active investigation but has full confidence in the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life.

Burke, a community engagement director at Cornell, said in an email to the Cornell Sun on that he cannot comment further on an ongoing situation.
