TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- University of Alabama officials say school president, Judy Bonner, has asked fraternity leaders to make their chapters more inclusive following allegations of racism influencing the rush process in campus sororities.
Reports say UA spokeswoman Cathy Andreen says Bonner has asked fraternities to take steps to remove barriers to inclusion in their organizations.
School officials haven't elaborated on exactly how the organizations will work toward inclusion, and Andreen says Bonner is now reviewing the recruitment practices of all of the school's Greek organizations.
Associate history professor Steve Bunker says historically white fraternities accepting black pledges would be a major university milestone.
Bunker says additional factors -- like socio-economic status and religion -- should be part of comprehensive discussions on inclusion in the Greek system.
