TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- University of Alabama faculty members are forming a task force on diversity following allegations of racism within the school's Greek-letter social organizations.

The Faculty Senate voted to create the group during a meeting Tuesday.

The task force will be made up of five faculty members, three students and two administrators. It will make recommendations on ways to improve campus diversity.

Faculty Senate President Steve Miller says he's unsure what changes might occur because of reports generated by the group. He calls creation of the task force "uncharted territory" for the Faculty Senate.

The decision follows media reports and confirmation from the university's president that at least some white sororities made membership decisions based on race.

A few black members have since accepted invitations to join traditionally white sororities.
