Georgia Tech investigating 'rapebait' email

ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia Tech is investigating reports that a fraternity member wrote an email with instructions for "luring rapebait" at parties with the help of alcohol. The email has been widely circulated on Internet sites.

Georgia Tech's Office of Student Integrity is looking into the matter, the school said in a statement to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/1a6iBMG ).

"Georgia Tech is aware of this incident, and its Office of Student Integrity is currently engaged in an investigation to determine the facts," the university said in a statement.

"Phi Kappa Tau's national office, as well as Tech's student-led Interfraternity Council, are also reviewing the matter to determine whether to take any independent action," the statement said. "The Institute does not condone this type of behavior and continues to provide resources and education designed to create a supportive campus environment for all students, even those who exercise extremely poor judgment."

The Phi Kappa Tau national office in Oxford, Ohio did not respond to the newspaper's requests for additional information on Monday. A representative of the national organization did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Georgia Tech is formally known as the Georgia Institute of Technology.
