A third fraternity at Cal State Northridge has been suspended after an investigation of hazing and sexual misconduct allegations, officials said.

Tau Kappa Epsilon was stripped of all its Greek duties and will no longer be recognized as a fraternity, CSUN spokesman Jeff Noblitt said. The suspension took effect Jan. 21 and ends July 20, 2018, at which time the fraternity’s future will come under review.

“CSUN has a zero-tolerance policy for hazing,” Noblitt said.

The suspension comes after school officials investigated a hazing incident that occurred during a fall 2013 retreat. School officials believe sexual misconduct also occurred during that time, but that it was reported later.
