Missouri University of Science and Technology has temporarily suspended the Epsilon Psi Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity pending formal procedures as the university investigates a recent incident that resulted in injuries to two Missouri S&T students and that allegedly involved fraternity members.
According to University Police at Missouri S&T, the students were injured during an event last week at the fraternity house. Campus police were notified of the incident on Sunday, Oct. 16.
During the temporary suspension, the Alpha Phi Alpha chapter at Missouri S&T is not recognized as a student organization and does not have access to or use of university facilities. Access to the activities or privileges of student organizations will also be suspended.
“Any behavior that poses a threat to the health and safety of our students will not be tolerated,” Missouri S&T Chancellor Cheryl B. Schrader said. “We will conduct a full and thorough investigation of these allegations, and we will cooperate fully with all law enforcement agencies and the Phelps County prosecutor’s office in any criminal investigations.”
