KU Fraternity Plagued With Sexual Allegations Says It Is Not A Threat To The University

A University of Kansas fraternity that was suspended over sexual assault allegations says it wants the suspension lifted.

Kappa Sigma representatives say the organization is not a danger to the campus and KU's investigation into the allegations is taking too long.

Fraternity representatives will attend a hearing next week to request the suspension be lifted.

Kappa Sigma has been on interim suspension since September 30th, after the university received reports of "multiple instances of sexual misconduct" at the chapter house in late September.

The university's typical 60-day investigation time period would end by December 1st, but the university says it needs more time because the investigation is complex.
