WEST LONG BRANCH, N. J. – A New Jersey university has indefinitely suspended all fraternities and sororities for what school officials say was an inadequate response to some “serious behavior violations.”
The Asbury Park Press that all non-educational activities sponsored by the Monmouth University’s seven fraternities and nine sororities have been canceled, including parties, recruitment and community service events.
University President Grey Dimenna said the suspensions were a “pro-active” move.
Dimenna says he and the board Vice-President Mary Anne Nagy met with leaders of the school’s Greek Senate earlier this summer to discuss behavior violations such as hazing and drug use. Dimenna says he told them to submit a preliminary plan to change the current culture of fraternities and sororities.
Ultimately, Dimenna says the submitted draft plan fell short of the expectations, that the suspension.
