LAWRENCE, Kan. – The University of Kansas has announced it will shut down the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity chapter on campus at the end of the semester after an investigation found evidence of hazing and drug use.
University officials informed the chapter in a recent letter that the fraternity would be shuttered on Nov. 25, the Lawrence Journal-World reported Friday. The letter says the earliest the fraternity could rejoin as a student organization would be in the spring of 2026.
A copy of the letter released by KU to the Journal-World was heavily redacted to protect the privacy of students. But visible portions of the letter said that the fraternity was found responsible for harming or endangering members, hazing students as part of initiation in each of the last two years and of having an “open culture of illegal drug use.”
The chapter has been active at KU since 2000, according to the fraternity’s website.
