University, fraternity statement on Phi Kappa Psi suspension

In an announcement that the chapter of Phi Kappa Psi fraternity at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has been suspended, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Juan Franco made the following statement:

“Promoting an environment of respect and care among our students is of utmost importance. While it is unfortunate that this action has to be taken, it is an appropriate action.”

James D’Imperio, Phi Kappa Psi’s national director of standards, made the following statement:

“Decisions to suspend a chapter are among the most difficult a fraternity’s leadership and staff must make; decisions which are not taken lightly. Nevertheless, when circumstances dictate and the best interests of the fraternity are at risk, suspension will be considered in partnership with the campus and the chapter’s alumni leadership. Phi Kappa Psi’s leadership and staff are foremost committed to educating, leading and inspiring our undergraduate and alumni members to make positive and constructive decisions.”
