ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A student-run council at the University of Michigan has suspended fraternity social events following allegations of sexual misconduct and hazing involving fraternity members.

The Interfraternity Council said in a statement forwarded by the Ann Arbor school that the suspension approved Thursday will allow council members to assess their policies and practices and develop “a formal plan going forward.” The council governs fraternity chapters at the school.

The statement didn’t detail the allegations, but The Michigan Daily student newspaper reports allegations outlined to the council include reports of sexual misconduct, multiple reports of hazing and people being taken to hospitals on recent weekends.

According to the newspaper, some of the hazing reports include that people were put in “alleged near-death situations.”

University spokeswoman Kim Broekhuizen said Friday the school is “vigorously investigating these reports.”
