The Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity on the Missouri University of Science and Technology campus in Rolla has been temporarily suspended after an incident there resulted in two students being hospitalized.
University officials said they are investigating the incident but declined to give more details about what happened to the injured students.
According to university police, the students were injured during an event last week at the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity house. Campus police were notified about the incident on Sunday. University officials said no arrests were made, but campus police are cooperating with Rolla police on the incident.
Members of the fraternity’s national headquarters could not be reached Monday to comment on the suspension.

A statement from the university said that “during the temporary suspension, the Alpha Phi Alpha chapter at Missouri S&T is not recognized as a student organization and does not have access to or use of university facilities.” Access to the activities or privileges of student organizations will also be suspended.
Since the Alpha Phi Alpha house is on university property, members who live there will have to leave the house. University housing officials are working with students to find other arrangements.
“Any behavior that poses a threat to the health and safety of our students will not be tolerated,” said Missouri S&T Chancellor Cheryl B. Schrader.
