KU Frats on Probation For Hazing

The University of Missouri-Kansas City and the University of Kansas are joining a national trend toward setting aside areas in residences halls to accommodate students who don't identify with a specific gender.
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – Two fraternities at the University of Kansas are on probation for hazing.
Documents obtained through an open records request show Delta Tau Delta and Phi Beta Sigma were placed on probation this spring. Hazing at Delta Tau Delta occurred in fall 2014, and hazing by Phi Beta Sigma occurred in spring 2015.
The university prohibits hazing, which it says can include anything from “extreme embarrassment” to endangering someone’s physical health.
The university didn’t detail what hazing occurred or whether the fraternities have complied with the terms of their probations so far.
Delta Tau Delta’s national headquarters says some members of the Kansas chapter have been disciplined. The national headquarters of Phi Beta says on its website that a few members have been suspended through 2019.
