On Thursday, Vice President for College Life and Dean of Students Anne Ehrlich sent out a campus-wide email that updated the community on the incident at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) house last month.
The incident involved individuals unknowingly being recorded in the bathroom at the SAE house by a hidden phone on Oct. 22. This prompted an investigation by both the College and the local police.
“The college has completed its investigation. The investigation concluded that SAE as an organization was not involved and, as a result, SAE’s social suspension has been lifted,” said Ehrlich.
SAE was initially placed on social suspension following the first announcement of the incident on Oct. 24. Ehrlich thanked the fraternity for cooperating in the investigation, and said the finding of their innocence led to their social rights being reinstated.
“The individual student involved has left the College,” mentioned Ehrlich. “The Gettysburg Police Department investigation is ongoing. The college will continue to cooperate with the police investigation.”
The individual involved has yet to be named.
The email concluded with Ehrlich encouraging members of the campus community to receive any needed support from the various agencies at the College, including the Office of Title IX and Sexual Respect, Counseling Services, and other areas of College Life.
