Sorority at Harvard votes to close over no-single-sex-groups policy

Article here. Excerpt:

'Two years after Harvard University said it would penalize students who joined fraternities, sororities and final clubs, a campus sorority chapter is shutting down.

The Delta Gamma sorority announced Sunday that it had voted unanimously to honor a request by its Cambridge chapter, Zeta Phi, to close.

“This decision does not mean that we are succumbing to the University’s new sanctions and policies,” the president of Delta Gamma’s national organization, Wilma Johnson Wilbanks, said in a statement.

“We will continue to champion our right to exist on campuses everywhere,” her statement said. “We believe the value of sorority is too great.”
In an email to students, Harvard’s president at the time, Drew Gilpin Faust, said that fraternities and sororities enacted “forms of privilege and exclusion at odds with our deepest values” and said that the school could not “endorse selection criteria that reject much of the student body merely because of gender.”

Ms. Faust’s successor, Lawrence Bacow, has said he intends to continue the policy. Other schools, as well as states around the country, have begun to crack down on Greek life organizations.'
