Montana State University Fraternity Sanctioned After Sexual Assault
A Montana State University fraternity has accepted permanent sanctions for violating the university’s alcohol policy.
The sanctions come three months after a woman said she believed she had been drugged and sexually assaulted at the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity house during a party. Campus police have turned over the results of their investigation to the Gallatin County attorney’s office.
MSU Dean of Students Matt Caiers says the sanctions include prohibiting the consumption of hard alcohol on fraternity property and requiring sexual assault prevention training for members. Beer and wine will still be allowed at fraternity parties. The fraternity has also agreed to have several members remain sober during gatherings to make sure guests get home safely.
If Pi Kappa Alpha commits future violations it could lose its university recognition.
