Kappa Delta Rho was placed on interim suspension on Nov.10 as Temple University investigates a “credible allegation of hazing,” wrote Stephanie Ives, dean of students, in an email to The Temple News.
Temple is following the standard procedure of when an Interfraternity Council president’s chapter has been placed on interim suspension, Ives wrote. IFC Vice President Justin Sagam has assumed the duties of IFC President Dylan Hollywood, who is a member of Kappa Delta Rho. Although Hollywood’s responsibilities were temporarily suspended, there is currently no indication that he is directly involved or aware of the alleged hazing.
“We take this allegation very seriously and because our top priority is the safety of all our students, we took this immediate action,” Ives wrote.
In September, Temple placed Alpha Tau Omega on interim suspension after they hosted an unregistered party. Alpha Tau Omega was also being investigated for separate instances of reported misconduct.
