Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity has been placed on interim suspension after a report was made indicating that the organization had a violated the terms of their probation, according to a statement released by ETSU.
The fraternity was placed on interim suspension in September 2016 and was initially placed on probation in September 2015 after a report was made indicating that the fraternity had violated policies regarding registered parties.
“While on interim suspension, Pi Kappa Alpha cannot use campus facilities or hold meetings or host events and is not recognized by the university,” said ETSU’s statement. “An investigation into the matter is under way.”
Jacob Gooden, the president of Pi Kappa Alpha, said that a university employee informed the chapter of the suspension on Sept. 23. Gooden said that after waiting a few days for more information, he contacted the employee on Sept. 26 requesting information about the violations.
“I was promptly notified by a campus representative that there were ‘several outstanding judicial issues,'” Gooden said.
