Pennsylvania State University announced Monday it will conduct a review of its Greek system following the discovery of a fraternity’s Facebook page that featured pictures of naked or semi-nude women who appeared to be passed out or asleep.
“This comprehensive examination of fraternity and sorority life and its culture will not be simple and it may not be comfortable,” Penn State President Eric Barron said in a statement Monday, calling the actions by Kappa Delta Rho members “intolerable and disturbing.”
The chapter was suspended by its national organization last week after it was revealed that some members ran at least one Facebook page that contained images of naked or partially nude women who appeared to be heavily intoxicated or unaware the photographs were being taken.
Barron said next week he intends to name a task force that will include undergraduates, alumni and trustees, as well as prevention experts and representatives from national organizations. Among the topics that will be evaluated are alcohol abuse, sexual assault, diversity and whether the university’s fraternities and sororities behave in line with their organizations’ values.
