Morgan State fraternity accused of rejecting a student because he's gay was placed on probation

BALTIMORE - A fraternity chapter that was accused of rejecting a Morgan State student because he is gay was placed on disciplinary probation until fall 2015, university officials confirmed.

Morgan State University senior Brian Stewart filed the complaint in October saying he was shocked when he was rejected from Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity.

Morgan State spokesman Jarrett Carter said the Alpha Iota chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi  violated certain university regulations, procedures and policies.

"During the probationary period, the chapter cannot register as an official organization or student group with the university," Carter said. "The chapter cannot participate in any university sponsored event or activity, and cannot sponsor or host any event on or off campus."

Stewart, a business administration major and former White House intern, told ABC2 News earlier this fall he was denied entry into the fraternity because he's gay.

"I had heard stuff about them calling me derogatory names, considering my sexuality as a factor," said Stewart in October. "I had gotten calls from within the chapter telling me that it's going to be impossible for me to join."
