MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - The University of Montana has banned fraternities and sororities from holding events involving alcohol, citing the chapters’ poor behavior over homecoming weekend.

Caitlin Parker, interim assistant director of UM’s Office for Fraternity and Sorority Involvement, wrote in a letter to Greek chapter leaders that the decision was made because of “underage drinking, poor community relations, lack of mutual respect to fellow fraternity and sorority members, and a general lack of accountability.”

The Missoulian reports (https://goo.gl/GDgMuV ) the ban will not be lifted until at least the end of October, and any fraternities or sororities that don’t abide by it could face probation.

Parker says she spoke with alumni in town for homecoming celebrations and other members of the community who were disappointed in the behavior of some fraternities and sororities.
