STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Nearly 40 members have been expelled from a Penn State fraternity that’s been suspended for three years over a Facebook page featuring photos of nude and semi-nude women.
The national office of Kappa Delta Rho says Monday the 38 members violated the fraternity’s values. Other members will be moved to alumni status.
Kappa Delta Rho executive director Joseph Rosenberg said in a statement that fraternity members who assumed responsibility for their actions wouldn’t be expelled. He says chapter President Tom Friel exhibited outstanding leadership traits.
The actions have no effect on their status at the school.
Penn State says its investigation found some fraternity members engaged in sexual harassment and hazing that included a “persistent climate of humiliation” for women.
The school says it won’t recognize the fraternity until 2018.
