University of Vermont Fraternity Suspended Over Controversial Survey

A University of Vermont fraternity has been suspended in connection with a survey that makes light of rape.

UVM said Tuesday that it's investigating the source of the survey, who saw and how it was used.

Sigma Phi Epsilon has been suspended during the investigation.

Annie Stevens, UVM's associate vice president for student and campus life called the survey incredibly offensive and inappropriate, saying it asks participants if they could rape someone, who would it be.

A student reported the survey to UVM officials, who notified police.

Members of the Burlington fraternity would not comment on the allegations. The national chapter of the fraternity located in Virginia has been notified of the allegations and could not be reached for comment after business hours.
