Morgan State University Suspends It’s Kappas

Here’s the story from Fox Baltimore:

Morgan State University has placed its chapter of the fraternity of Kappa Alpha Psi on disciplinary probation until 2015, following allegations of discrimination over sexual orientation. The University confirmed the probation to FOX45 on Tuesday and issued the following statement;

“The Alpha Iota chapter of Kappa Alpha has been determined to have violated certain university regulations, procedures and policies.As a result, the chapter has been placed on disciplinary probation until fall 2015. During the probationary period, the chapter cannot register as an official organization or student group with the university. The chapter cannot participate in any university sponsored event or activity, and cannot sponsor or host any event on or off campus.”

An investigation into the Alpha Iota Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity was launched by the University after student Brian Stewart claimed he had been barred from membership due to this sexual orientation. According to the student, a former intern of First Lady Michelle Obama, members of the fraternity hinted that because of his sexual orientation, his membership was highly unlikely.

He obtained a set of messages he claims were about him — an online give and take about his membership full of derogatory language. One message says in part, “give him the perception of a fair and equal opportunity.”
