National Fraternity And Sorority Groups Condemn Harvard’s New Policy On Single-Gender Clubs

Tyler Kingkade of The Huffington Post writes, “…Harvard said a policy starting in fall 2017 would block students who join unrecognized single-sex groups from holding leadership positions in student government and athletic teams, or getting an endorsement from the college for prestigious scholarships.

The new policy is meant to force Final Clubs — which are essentially Harvard versions of fraternities — to go co-ed. However, the policy goes after any unrecognized single-gender social organization, which ensnares actual fraternities and sororities as well, since Harvard does not recognize them.”
