University of Wisconsin-Madison has suspended Sigma Alpha Epsilon through November 1.

…an investigation found chapter members repeatedly used racist, homophobic and anti-Semitic slurs, and then ostracized a black member who told them to stop, according to documents released by the university…

The Committee on Student Organizations issued its ruling after investigating allegations against the fraternity made in March by an unnamed student member, who is black.

The student alleged that fellow members had casually used a racial slur for African-Americans from fall 2014 through February of this year, and that one fraternity member assaulted him in a racially motivated attack. Members also used homophobic and anti-Semitic language, according to the student.
