A Public Safety Advisory was sent to the Drexel University Community May 5 regarding two allegations of sexual assault at the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity.

Drexel University’s Office of Communications released a statement to The Triangle May 9 in regard to these incidents, which reads as follows:

“Drexel University Police and the Office of Equality and Diversity received reports of two allegations of sexual assaults that occurred at the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity at 3421 Powelton Avenue. These incidents are alleged to have occurred between April 28 and May 4, 2017.  Drexel University Police and the Office of Equality and Diversity are working with university officials on a coordinated investigation.

Drexel does not tolerate sexual harassment or misconduct, in any form, and adheres to all federal, state and local requirements for intervention, crime reporting and privacy provisions related to sexual misconduct.

The Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity has been placed on interim suspension.”

    These cases have been closed but Drexel is refusing to make an announcement that they have been closed. It’s quite disgusting on the part of the University.

    and TKE has not been formally suspended.

    Please start reporting legitimate facts. This is false and disappointing to see how Drexel is handling the case. The cases were both closed within a day. Drexel is not supporting their students within the TKE fraternity and it is disgusting.

  • Dena

    Drexel has been trying to shut down a well respected and awesome fraternity for years. This is all politics.
