UVA Suspends Fraternities After Rolling Stone Article About Rape

UVA Suspends Fraternities After Rolling Stone Article About Rape

The University of Virginia has suspended all its fraternities until next
year, following an article detailing one student’s brutal sexual assault and her
quest for justice.

University President Teresa A. Sullivan issued a statement on Saturday saying
all “fraternal organizations and associated social activities” were
suspended until Jan. 9, the beginning of spring semester.

Sullivan said she has asked the Charlottesville Police Department to
investigate the 2012 incident described in the Rolling Stone article, and called on students to come
forward about what happened that night.

“The wrongs described in Rolling Stone are appalling and have caused
all of us to reexamine our responsibility to this community,” she said. “Rape is
an abhorrent crime that has no place in the world, let alone on the campuses and
grounds of our nation’s colleges and universities. “

The university’s Inter-Fraternity Council had voluntarily suspended social
activities for the weekend, but Sullivan noted that the “challenges will extend
beyond this weekend.”
