Fraternity parties at Cornell University have been temporarily suspended following multiple drugging allegations and a separate sexual assault allegation, according to a statement by the university.

The Cornell Police Department reported Nov. 4 that “at least four” students reported becoming “incapacitated” at parties, despite having “little to no alcohol,” between Sept. 24 and Nov. 3. The Interfraternity Council (IFC), which governs the 30 Greek life chapters on campus, made the decision Sunday to temporarily suspend all fraternity social events.

The Cornell Police Department said the parties took place at off-campus residences. The individuals involved told the police department they believe they were exposed to Rohypnol, commonly known as “roofies,” a sedative drug.

“IFC student leaders made this decision voluntarily Sunday evening after an emergency meeting with staff, and we fully support this necessary pause,” the statement from the school read. “Fraternity leaders will take this time to implement stronger health and safety plans. No IFC-affiliated social events will resume until student leaders and Cornell staff are confident activities can take place responsibly and safely.”

The university’s police department as well as the university are conducting an investigation into the allegations, the statement read. Students are encouraged to report any additional information regarding the alleged incidents to the Ithaca Police Department.

“We reiterate that Cornell must be a caring community where all students feel respected and safe,” the university statement read. “We must all remain firm in our conviction that this behavior must be eradicated from our community, whether or not we – or our organizations – were directly involved. We encourage you to take time to connect with and reach out to your community of friends and peers to ask for and offer support as needed. Our campus community is stronger together.”

Cornell University, the Cornell University Police Department and IFC did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
