Salisbury University Fraternity Officially Suspended for Hazing

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury University fraternity Phi Beta Sigma was found guilty of hazing and suspended from the university through the spring 2017 semester.

According to campus officials, earlier this academic year the Student Affairs Office received reports that a student organization may have been involved in activities including hazing, which is a violation of the Student Code of Conduct.

Through the University's conduct process, the social fraternity was found guilty of hazing with concerns of paddling and calisthenics, Salisbury University's Assistant Vice President of Student AffairsValerie Randall Lee said.

Lee says there were specific names involved and the university was able to follow up with those individuals.

Lee says hazing is one of those things that the university is always concerned about.

"To tell the students about hazing we have had over 20 educational seminars in the past three semesters," Lee said. "We want to make sure that if they are ever concerned about themselves or concerned about others being victims of hazing they can go to University Police or student affairs."

Vice President of Student Affairs Dr. Dane Foust has testified in Annapolis to increase the penalties of hazing, Lee said.

According to university officials, in order for Phi Beta Sigma to return to the university, there is an educational sanction they need to complete. The fraternity must work on education in regards to what hazing is and provide their findings for the university, Lee said.

According to Lee, if the fraternity is permitted back on campus, they must make sure any member that is current right now can not be active when reapplying.
