KNOXVILLE, TN (Knox News) - The national office of Kappa Alpha Order Fraternity on Monday suspended its chapter on the University of Tennessee's Knoxville campus while a review is completed regarding “certain operational concerns.”

Karen Simsen, a spokeswoman for the university, said the university has not taken any formal action against the fraternity as of yet.

“That doesn't mean that we won't take some action down the road, but we have not completed our investigation,” she said. “It will go through our student conduct process.”

According to a statement from the national office, the suspension is in effect through the end of the academic semester with the intent for the fraternity to return after the review of its members is complete.

An extension of the suspension is also possible.

The national office says that members who live in the chapter house and/or have a contract to take meals at the home can continue to do so, but all other chapter operations and activities must cease.

“All members at this time are now classified as alumni members not in good standing,” the statement said.
