(STATE COLLEGE, Pa.) — A Penn State University fraternity is suspended and under investigation after they allegedly posted “highly inappropriate photographs” online on private Facebook pages.

PSU Vice President for Student Affairs Damon Sims said in a statement that the school’s Interfraternity Council had suspended the Kappa Delta Rho fraternity on March 3, and that the fraternity’s national headquarters announced on Tuesday a one-year suspension for the chapter. “The action is being taken in response to the chapter allegedly hosting private Facebook pages where highly inappropriate photographs were posted of activities and events that are in direct violation of the standards and values of a recognized student organization at Penn State,” Sims said.

Sims also noted that the internal and external investigations and reviews will “determine responsibility” and that the university “will hold accountable any groups and individuals found responsible.”

A statement posted to the Kappa Delta Rho national Facebook page, attributed to Joseph Rosenberg, the fraternity’s executive director, said that a “full membership review and reorganization” is under way.

“Upon the completion of that investigation, we will evaluate these further findings and make a decision regarding the Penn State chapter that is appropriate for all parties,” the statement says. “The national leadership at Kappa Delta Rho is committed to hold our brothers accountable for their actions.”
