University of Tennessee fraternity reforms

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - University of Tennessee fraternities are implementing sweeping reform recommended by a campus task force.

The changes follow embarrassments that resulted in two UT fraternity chapters closing. The one that garnered most attention was an incident at the former Pi Kappa Alpha chapter house where members were found intoxicated after one was brought to a hospital emergency room passed out. A police investigation said a wine enema was the cause.

Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter adviser Kelly Williams said changes that include live-in house directors, a stronger grade requirement and extra security are aimed at changing the culture in UT's Fraternity Park.

The reforms were proposed by a task force on Greek life in March.
