NORTHRIDGE, CA (July 8, 2016) — The Alpha Kappa Psi Board of Directors voted to suspend the charter of the Mu Phi Chapter at California State University – Northridge. The board’s decision was based upon an investigation which revealed violations of the alcohol policy and conspiracy to impede an investigation occurred within the chapter. In an effort to prevent future occurrences, the fraternity offers resources and education related to risk prevention.

“As we begin the 2017 school year, I encourage you to review your chapter’s activities, traditions, and policies and compare them to the most recent edition of the Board of Directors’ Statement of Policy,” said J. Christian Nuccio, North Carolina-Charlotte ’09-Life, who is the chair of the AKPsi Judiciary Committee. “The most common risk management trends during these California chapter inquiries have been alcohol use, drug use, hazing, and failing to properly apply the ‘reasonable person’ standard when defining what is and is not a chapter event.”
