Statement by National President James D. Boyle on Settlement of Rolling Stone Lawsuit

Indianapolis, June 13, 2017 - The debunked Rolling Stone article caused considerable turmoil to individual Phi Kappa Psi members and alumni in addition to the University community as a whole. It is gratifying now to be able to put this entire ordeal behind us. 

The goal of fraternity life is to foster high ideals: integrity, fellowship, leadership, and service. This most unfortunate series of events only reinforces the importance of our commitment to developing young men of character in an environment of safety and trust. 

The Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity, founded in 1852 at Jefferson College, engages men of integrity, further develops their intellect and enhances community involvement. With a legacy built on acceptance and trust, each brother realizes his highest potential through a lifelong experience of service and excellence. Today there are 106 undergraduate chapters and colonies, 51 alumni associations and more than 124,000 lifetime initiates.
