The Badger Herald: News: Alleged rape at Sigma Chi

The Badger Herald: News: Alleged rape at Sigma Chi.

The Sigma Chi fraternity has placed itself on a form of social probation amid a controversial investigation into at least one sexual assault that allegedly took place at its Langdon Street house last October.

Our thanks to this brave victim who has brought her experience to light, enabling her to connect with other victims and get the ball rolling on legitimate criminal investigation.

Let’s hope that Michael Dunn, executive director of the Sigma Chi International Fraternity, is earnest when he told the Herald that they are “taking the allegations very seriously and is cooperating with both UW and police.”

Let’s also hope that beyond the legal considerations, the IFC at UW will take more decisive action to increase prevention education in their frat and on the UW campus as a whole.

    I don’t have a comment on this particular story….but I was thrilled to see this organization still running. I was one of the founding members in 1983. It was a great experience in my life to be involved with the group of men that started this. Something came up the other day that made me think of the group, and I went to see if it still exists. So glad to see it does. Keep up the good work!

    I remember some of our first workshops at fraternites…..of course, it is sad they are still needed.
