Racial Incident Prompts Mizzou Frat Suspension

KSAL StaffSeptember 28, 2016

A fraternity at the University of Missouri has been suspended while officials investigate reports of racial and sexist slurs.

The Delta Upsilon national organization suspended its chapter at the university Wednesday after an incident in which members were accused of shouting slurs at black students late Tuesday.

The university is investigating after two black female students said other students yelled racial slurs at them as they walked past the fraternity house.

Delta Upsilon International said in a statement that the temporary suspension would continue while the incident is investigated. Fraternity Executive Director Justin Kirk says “racism and sexism have no place in our fraternity.”

The university says it’s identified the students involved and that discipline for students who violate the university’s nondiscrimination policies may include expulsion.
