Kappa Kappa Psi Issues Five-Year Suspension for FAMU Chapter, Expels 28 Members
[mpoverlay]Kappa Kappa Psi, a national honorary band fraternity, today released a statement announcing a five-year suspension of the Florida A&M University Delta Iota chapter of the organization. Additionally, 28 members of the fraternity associated with hazing during a spring 2010 intake process have been expelled from the organization.
This decision was based primarily upon hazing activities that occurred as well as other related issues including a failure to follow policies of the national organization and uncertainty of the future leadership and direction of the University and the Music Department. All undergraduate members of Delta Iota chapter in the spring semester of 2010 have been expelled. All prospective members–those in the joining process–during the spring semester of 2010 have been expelled. Any members of the Fraternity including alumnus members who were present at the incident that led to the investigation and sanctions have been expelled.
A total of 28 individuals have been expelled from Kappa Kappa Psi. Any current dues paying student members of Delta Iota chapter who were not members during the spring 2010 semester have been placed on Alumni status with Kappa Kappa Psi Fraternity. As alumnus members they may not participate in any undergraduate chapter event or activity at Florida A&M University since the Delta Iota Chapter is no longer active. Any violation of this status will result in expulsion from the Fraternity. (KKPsi.org)
The Delta Iota chapter will be eligible for reinstatement in May 2017.[/mpoverlay]
