The University of Alberta’s Dean of Students announced the registration suspension of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity on Thursday.
The suspension comes a week after a video surfaced that allegedly showed frat pledges being forced to eat vomit.
“Effective immediately, the registration of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity, as a student group at the University, is suspended,” Robinson said.
“The suspension is in effect until further notice.”
A pile of frozen vomit greets visitors at the front door of the frat house near the university campus, perhaps an indication of how often residents have used the door over the past week.
Delta Kappa Epsilon members have remained tight-lipped about the incident since the video was leaked.
The fraternity can appeal the suspension, which will end once an investigation is completed by Campus Protection Services.
Robinson said anyone with information on the incident is encouraged to come forward.
“Any student that may be affected by these activities is encouraged to access the full suite of confidential student services available at the university,” he said.
“We are treating this as a very complex situation involving a lot of our students and we take it very seriously.”
