The University of Nebraska-Lincoln placed the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity on interim suspension Tuesday.
 
The suspension is the result of an ongoing Office of Student Affairs investigation into a pattern of behavior by the fraternity which violates the school's Student Code of Conduct. That pattern includes the reckless use of alcohol.
 
The university began it's investigation after allegations were made against members of Phi Gamma Delta for their conduct during the Women's March on Lincoln on January 21st.
 
The interim suspension includes the university's immediate withdrawal of it's recognition of Phi Gamma Delta, as well as a temporary revocation if the chapter's affiliation with the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life.  The interim suspension will remain in effect until the university's investigation is completed. At that point, longer term action could be taken depending on the outcome.
 
Phi Gamma Delta's national office is also reviewing the allegations and may consider short and long term sanctions on the chapter.
