Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Suspended Through Fall 2027
Penn State fraternity Kappa Alpha Psi has been suspended for four years after allegations of hazing violations were investigated, the university announced Tuesday.
The fraternity was put on interim suspension on August 25 while hazing allegations were investigated and has since been suspended until fall 2027 for its violations.
“We hold the health and safety of students as our highest priority and take all allegations of hazing seriously,” Interim Vice President for Student Affairs Andrea Dowhower said. “It is disappointing and concerning when, despite the legal obligations and educational efforts, groups violate our expectations.”
As a result of its suspension, Kappa Alpha Psi cannot operate as a university-recognized student organization, which includes not being able to participate in events like THON and Homecoming.
“We urge all student organizations to understand that any attempt to demean, harass, injure or endanger any student who is simply trying to be a member of their organization is hazing,” Dowhower said. “And all forms of hazing are against Penn State policy and against Pennsylvania law.”
Kappa Alpha Psi operates under the National Pan-Hellenic Council, which historically represents black fraternity and sororities.
