The Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority and Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity have been temporarily suspended by University of Connecticut Office of Community Standards amidst allegations of a hazing incident at a SAE off-campus house on Route 195 are investigated.
Under suspension, both organizations are prohibited from hosting or participating in activities and events while their cases are reviewed. They are also unable to participate in any outside organizations where a member may be representing the sorority or fraternity.
"This action is preliminary in nature and is utilized when information indicates that the presence of your organization on campus could pose a threat to the health and safety of the campus community," University spokesperson Stephanie Reitz said in a letter to the presidents of the national KKG and SAE organizations.
The suspension is not a sanction, but a "preliminary step in the process of determining the facts and what violations the groups may have committed, if any," Reitz said.
The decision to suspend the groups was made in collaboration with the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life.
The groups will be suspended until the case is resolved.
