Cal Poly’s Pi Kappa Alpha (PIKE) fraternity has submitted an appeal for its suspension to be reviewed by Vice President for Student Affairs Keith Humphrey. The chapter was suspended in January for party violations and a reported sexual assault.
After reviewing the file and case history, Humphrey will decide whether to meet with the leadership of the organization or issue a response based on the arguments made in the document. Ultimately, Humphrey will choose to keep the current sanctions or make them lighter or stronger.
“I know it’s important to the organization to resolve the matter as quickly as possible, but it’s also important that we are thorough and complete in our response,” Humphrey said. “The process will take a reasonable amount of time to gather all the information that I need to make a fair decision.”
If Humphrey decides to keep the current sanctions, PIKE could face a six-year suspension.
Alpha Gamma Rho (AGR) also has the opportunity to appeal after a decision was made last week to put it on social probation.
