UNL fraternity issues self-suspension following report of sexual assault

LINCOLN, Neb. -- A University of Nebraska-Lincoln fraternity has placed its chapter on a self-suspension following a sexual assault allegation against a member.

According to a post on Sigma Chi's Instagram page, the fraternity was notified of a reported sexual assault that had occurred on the fraternity's property.

The post said the member accused of the assault has been removed from the organization.

Sigma Chi said it reported the allegation to UNL, as well as the group's international headquarters, and placed itself on a self-suspension.

The announcement follows protest last week related to a reported sexual assault against a member of Phi Gamma Delta.
