The University of Alabama will make changes to its sorority system following a report in a student publication revealing discrimination in the Greek-letter organizations' formal recruitment process.
University President Judy Bonner acknowledged Tuesday that the on-campus organizations are segregated by race.
Bonner ordered members of a campus association composed of typically white sororities begin using a continuous recruitment process in which new members can be added at any time. Up until now, the formal fall sorority recruitment lasted for a limited time and ended in August.
Bonner also mandated that groups may have up to 360 members -- to increase the chances for prospective members.
