UA Faculty Senate Continues Sorority Discussion

By  | 

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- The University of Alabama Faculty Senate planned to resume discussions of a statement urging action by the school administration after recent allegations of racial discrimination during sorority recruitment and voter fraud by Greek organizations.

The Tuscaloosa News reports ( that the senate began discussing the statement on Sept. 17. Faculty Senate President Steve Miller said the latest draft will be released Tuesday at a 3:30 p.m. meeting.

Racial segregation in the university's sorority system was thrust into the spotlight this month when the student newspaper quoted a member of an all-white sorority, who said alumnae blocked undergraduates from accepting a qualified prospective member because she was black.

A member of another all-white sorority said she moved out after it failed to add a black woman as a member.
