News


ATLANTA -- A Georgia Tech fraternity has been disciplined after an investigation into allegations that members shouted racial slurs at a black female student.

On Wednesday, Georgia Tech announced that the fraternity had been suspended in abeyance until August 9, 2016. The suspension come after an investigation by the Office of Student Integrity that found the chapter "to be responsible for violating sections of the Code addressing discriminatory conduct."

According to the statement: 

During suspension in abeyance, the chapter is restricted to academic activities and approved non-academic activities, which include recruiting new members, holding meetings to conduct chapter business, and service activities. The chapter may neither participate in Greek Week or Homecoming nor host, co-host, or participate in social events on campus, with or without alcohol.

Members will also be required to complete training and education before the suspension is lifted, the release said.
