Brown University suspends men’s swim team after confirming hazing allegations


Brown University has announced that it has found its men’s swimming and diving team responsible for incidents of hazing and other conduct code violations.

As a result, the university said in a statement, it is suspending the team as a student organization through May 27. The suspension prohibits any team activity.

The team will be under deferred suspension through Dec. 21, the final day of the 2018 fall academic semester. During that period, the team will be able to hold practices but will not be allowed to represent the university in competition.

The team will remain on probation through the spring 2019 semester, during which time it will be able to resume competition while under scrutiny from the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards.
