From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
HUNTSVILLE — A charter of the Alabama A&M chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi was barred from campus by its national council on Tuesday over allegations of hazing.
The national council of Kappa Kappa Psi, a band fraternity, said it voted unanimously to revoke the charter of the Iota Nu chapter. With that, all active members within the Alabama A&M chapter have been expelled. The chapter is barred from recruiting new members for 20 years.
The expulsion stems from hazing related activities in the chapter’s New Member Presentation Show.
Alabama A&M’s vice president of marketing, communication and advancement, Archie Tucker, issued a statement to WAFF48 saying that the university was unaware of any hazing allegations prior to notice from the Kappa Kappa Psi national council.
“We were not made aware of any reports of hazing prior to this notice today from the national chapter,” Tucker said. “We have not received any reports of hazing from students, faculty of staff. We will look into the grounds for suspension, investigate the matter internally and speak further to the national chapter.”
