‘An obstacle to justice’: How Delta Upsilon leaders tolerated a culture that dismissed sexual assaultBy
In the last two years, at least 12 alleged sexual assaults involving University of Minnesota fraternities were reported to the University. Four of them involved Delta Upsilon.
Kayla Pederson promised herself she wouldn’t drink too much at Delta Upsilon’s spring formal in late March 2015. At a cabin tucked away in northwest Minnesota, the University of Minnesota graduate — then a junior — stayed mostly sober Friday night. She fell asleep on a couch and woke up the next day feeling at ease. So when the sun set Saturday, Pederson downed a little more.
