No Disciplinary Action Taken after Alleged Racist Frat Party

by Associated Press

 

NEW HAVEN, Conn. ― No disciplinary action will be taken against any students or student groups at Yale University involved in allegations of racism at a fraternity party held by Sigma Alpha Epsilon in October.

At the party in question, students complained that the fraternity denied entrance to minorities. Men at the door were said to have insisted that “White girls only” could come in.

The New Haven Register reports Yale College Dean Jonathan Holloway announced Wednesday that his investigation found that all students were permitted entry until the party became overpopulated.

Holloway said SAE brothers showed poor management of an overcrowded party and their behavior “fell short of the community standards” promoted at the Ivy League institution.

Fraternity members have consistently denied that the men said White girls only” at the door.
