THE UNIVERSITY of Nevada, Las Vegas is suspending the Kappa Sigma fraternity after the death of student, Nathan Valencia.
The suspension is effective immediately while a review of the fraternity’s “Fight Night” boxing event on November 19 is pending.
Valencia sustained injuries while participating in the event and died on November 23 of blunt force trauma.
“Our hearts ache for Mr. Valencia’s family, friends, and loved ones,” said UNLV President Keith E. Whitfield.
“We take our responsibility to review this tragic incident and the events leading up to it very seriously, and we are doing so both thoroughly and fairly to ensure something like this never happens again.”
The fraternity will be required to stop all operations and activities and its status as a registered student organization will be revoked pending the investigation by UNLV and the Office of Student Conduct.
