Chicago’s Loyola University Suspends Fraternity for 3 Years After Hazing Probe

CHICAGO — Loyola University in Chicago has suspended the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity for three years following an investigation into alleged hazing.

Dean of Students K.C. Mmeje says in a statement that Monday’s suspension stems from an alleged hazing incident and “engaging in disruptive and disorderly conduct that caused a disturbance in the neighborhood.”

Mmeje says: “Hazing is directly in opposition to the mission and values of Loyola and it will not be tolerated.”

The Chicago Sun-Times reports the fraternity has appealed the university’s decision through a school administrative process. The national SAE organization has issued a cease and desist order to the Loyola chapter, bringing to a halt all chapter operations.

The school last month had suspended the fraternity as it investigated.
