Syracus U boots all frats due to racial slursSyracuse University has suspended all social activities for fraternities for the semester after a group, including some frat members, allegedly called an African American student a racial slur on Saturday night.

The alleged slur was used amid heightened racial tension on campus and a university reeling from repeated alleged hate crimes and racist incidents.

SU Chancellor Kent Syverud said SU’s police department has assembled “substantial” evidence of the incident involving a fraternity, which occurred on College Place.

“The individuals involved have been identified and will be held appropriately accountable to the Code of Student Conduct and to the full extent of the law,” Syverud said.

An investigation determined that there were some members and guests of a Syracuse fraternity in the group that used the alleged racial epithet.
