University's Sanctions at Kappa's UConn Chapter
COLUMBUS, Ohio (May 9, 2014)—The University of Connecticut has decided to ban its chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma from campus for four years.
Kappa Kappa Gamma is disappointed with the University’s decision, which follows an event on March 6 that was not sanctioned by Kappa Kappa Gamma or its UConn chapter. Kappa views the punishment as extreme and plans to discuss an appeal with the chapter’s leadership before the University’s deadline. However, we believe it is in the best interest of the chapter’s members to wait until after finals week to allow them to remain focused on academics at this time.
Kappa believes that removing an entire chapter from campus for the poor decisions made by a few individuals at an unsanctioned event is wrong. Safety is a top priority for Kappa Kappa Gamma. Kappa will continue to work with the University of Connecticut’s administration to fully understand the events that allegedly took place on March 6, and to ensure the well-being of the members of Kappa’s UConn chapter.
