UNM Revokes Frat's Charter Over Conduct Violations

May 25, 2013

The University of New Mexico has revoked the charter of a fraternity over several violations of the student code of conduct.

School officials made the announcement Friday concerning Sigma Alpha Epsilon, which had been suspended since April when a rape allegedly occurred at the frat house.

Officials say the charter revocation was made because of numerous violations of the student code of conduct at an April 1 party that included the alleged sexual assault and alcohol consumption by minors.

The Albuquerque Journal ( reports a UNM investigation found that two underage women had been offered drinks by members of the fraternity at the party.

The revocation means SAE won't be able to reapply for charter until August 2017.
