Title

Article "Black women seeking own UR sorority"

Description

The Arts and Science faculty alongside the Dean of Westhampton College, Patricia Harwood, will consider the proposal to bring Historically Black Sororities to Westhampton College. After the third year of rush, the university’s efforts to create an all-inclusive environment within historically white sororities is lacking and many minority students have voiced their desires to expand Greek Life. A student proposal will be submitted to the faculty, and once approved, will continue on to the Committee on Sororities which will review which student groups are most interested in colonizing black sororities on campus. The Committee on Sororities will then begin the process of interviewing interested sororities and take charge of all procedures. Aside from Historically Black Sororities, many organizations, such as Women Involved in Living and Learning (WILL) and the Minority Student Union (MSU), are in support of students of color across campus.
