(Lincoln, NE) -- The University of Nebraska Lincoln extends its suspension of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity.
Chancellor Ronnie Green announced a temporary suspension of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity on August 25th, pending an investigation into violations of an existing probation. The University Conduct Board has determined that Fiji violated the Student Code of Conduct and in response, has suspended the Fiji fraternity through 2026. During the suspension, the fraternity will not be recognized by the university.
A separate criminal investigation by the University Police Department into the reported sexual assault is open and ongoing. A sexual assault was reported the first week of the fall semester. UNL said the victim of the alleged assault is a 17-year-old female and the suspect is a 19-year-old male. Students protested outside the fraternity house for several nights following the sexual assault report.
