UVA Faculty Propose Extending Frat Ban Through School Year

Updated on

University of Virginia faculty will seek to ban fraternities from campus for at least the rest of the academic year as investigators sort through a report of an alleged gang rape two years ago.

The Faculty of Arts and Sciences plans to vote this month on a non-binding resolution to extend the suspension until August, according to Alison Booth, an English professor. A ban through Jan. 9 was put in place last month after Rolling Stone magazine published an article in which a female freshman said she was assaulted by seven members of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity.
