AU Sexual Assault

 

See the full story here. The article highlights university administration’s evasion of responsibility for the culture of rape that it allowed Episolon Iota members to foster over the years. In an email to students, the administration said that EI lost its university and national fraternity recognition  back in 2001. But that hardly means the university administration’s hands are clean. Encouraging students to join only recognized fraternities, as the email says, can hardly be equated with actively creating a campus that is safe for women and a student body that understands the meaning of consent.  As the article put its, “AU didn’t appear to care about any of this when it was a personal safety issue for young women on campus, but only since it became a Public Relations issue for the University.”
