Binghamton University Investigating Hazing Complaints
Binghamton University officials are looking into a new round of hazing allegations.
The Binghamton Delta Chi fraternity chapter has had its charter suspended indefinitely by Delta Chi International, according to the university.
Officials say the Office of Student Conduct investigated allegations of potential hazing activity relayed by a parent of a new member of Delta Chi.
The investigation determined the allegations were accurate, although the university won’t release details as to what happened.
A statement released by the university says another report was received from a parent indicating the “behavior in question was still occurring.”
The suspension of the Binghamton Delta Chi chapter means all chapter operations are to cease. There also should be no contact between active members and associate members.
Binghamton University has been working to address past hazing allegations.
In a statement released Thursday, the university said “this kind of behavior won’t be tolerated.” The university said its investigation is ongoing and officials planned to take “actions regarding this fraternity and its leadership.”
University president Harvey Stenger last month said he expected “positive changes” this year with respect to fraternities and sororities.
