(State College) -- The national office of the fraternity suspended by Penn State over a Facebook page in which photos of nude and semi-nude women were posted says it respects the university's decision to suspend it for three years.

Kappa Delta Rho executive director Joseph Rosenberg says in a statement that the fraternity looks forward to working with the university to "effectuate improvements in the Greek system on campus."

He says the fraternity will try to regain recognition on campus after the suspension expires.

Penn State says its investigation found some fraternity members engaged in sexual harassment, hazing that included boxing matches and a "persistent climate of humiliation for several females."

The school canceled the fraternity's recognition as a campus organization until May 2018.
