Boston College announced Wednesday that it is suspending both the men’s and women’s swimming and diving programs indefinitely after it was determined that “hazing had occurred within the program.”
“The University does not – and will not – tolerate hazing in any form,” the school said in a statement.
The school announced that members of the program will “continue to have access to academic and medical resources provided to all Boston College student-athletes.”

According to the Boston Globe, 31 members of the program were named to the All-ACC Academic Team. In order to receive that honor, athletes must maintain a 3.0 grade point average in the previous semester as well as throughout their time in school.
The details of the hazing remain unclear.

The suspension comes just three months after Katey Stone, the longtime women’s hockey coach at nearby Harvard, retired amid allegations by players that she engaged in abuses and other misconduct during her nearly 30-year tenure.
Boston College police did not immediately respond to an email about possible records or complaints from members of the team.
