PREVIOUS COVERAGE:
PULLMAN, Wash. – Washington State University has notified the WSU Chapter of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority that it will be charged with violations of the university’s Standards of Conduct for Students as the result of an incident which occurred during a sorority-sponsored event last weekend in Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho.

WSU Dean of Students Melynda Huskey said the president of the Gamma Eta chapter has been notified that it will face disciplinary charges for disorderly conduct and alcohol violations as the result of complaints the university received from a Coeur d’ Alene resident who reported that intoxicated students were observed exiting from a chartered bus and urinating in public in a Coeur d’ Alene city park.

Huskey said WSU’s initial review of the complaint led to the finding that the chapter had sponsored a cruise on Lake Coeur d’ Alene and chartered the buses students exited during the incident in the city park.

“We have established that WSU students were involved in the public urination incident and the WSU Office of Student Standards and Accountability has sent notice of charges to the president of the sorority,” Huskey said. “Additional disciplinary actions may be taken as more information becomes available to us, particularly if we are able to confirm the identities of individual students.”

She said if students and student organizations are found responsible, they face a variety of possible sanctions under WSU’s student conduct code, ranging from warnings and probation to mandatory community service and suspension or expulsion.
