On Sunday, Jan. 19, ASU's Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity held a racially-insensitive party, in "honor" of Martin Luther King Day.

The fraternity has already been on social probation, due to an off-campus brawl involving some of its members. As a result, they also weren't allowed to host "sanctioned university" events on the premises.

On Wednesday, ASU disseminated the letter to news outlets, detailing the alleged violations, according to the Arizona Board of Regents Student Code of Conduct.

The charges against the fraternity include violating a previous disciplinary sanction, violating university rules on alcohol, off-campus conduct that posed a risk to the university community or university property and participating in discriminatory activities.

While the school investigates the incident, TKE has been placed on "interim suspension," meaning they will "cease all operations and all formal chapter events and activities, both on- and off-campus" until further notice.
