Quote:
All of Duke’s eight Panhellenic Council organizations will start a new Durham Panhellenic Council effective Wednesday, Dec. 1.

“We have been in conversations with the NPC, our member organizations and students and are disappointed to hear of their departure, but remain committed to our fraternity and sorority community at Duke,” wrote Emily Dye, director of student leadership at the University Center Activities & Events, in an email to The Chronicle.

Dye wrote that NPC is expected to make an announcement about the disaffiliation later today.
And this:

Quote:
The new Durham Panhellenic Association will invite first-years to rush in spring 2022, according to a Tuesday press release from the National Panhellenic Conference.

Eight Duke sororities voted to disaffiliate from the University effective Wednesday, Dec. 1 following more than a year of conversations between Panhellenic leadership, inter/national member organizations and university officials "following a variety of announcements restricting the Panhellenic community’s ability to recruit first-year women as new members and remain sustainable,” the release reads. It notes that the choice to disaffiliate was “unavoidable.”

“While we remain deeply appreciative of the collegial dialogue and good faith engagement with our community from university officials, our organizations cannot agree to the restrictions on new member recruitment demanded by Duke and were left with little choice but to establish an independent College Panhellenic,” National Panhellenic Conference CEO Dani Weatherford said in the release.

Weatherford wrote that NPC’s 26 organizations “believe fiercely in defending the rights of students, just like all other citizens, to associate when and with whom they choose.”

Good. I hope the other schools follow when their schools act like this.

The University can prohibit Greek life. They ultimately have the power here.

Look at Williams , Colby , Amherst ,Alfred,Bowdoin and Swarthmore. A private school can completely ban Greek Life lots of case law on that. Harvard attempted to ban single sex organizations big difference .
So yes we can have that conversation. I expect that more elite private universities will ban Greek life in the future.
I dont agree with banning students ability to form private voluntary associations but Private Universities ultimately have that authority.

In addition to prohibiting freshmen to join sororities, Duke also stripped the sororities of the housing formerly set aside for each sorority. Many other special interest organizations have been given set aside housing, but sororities no longer have specific areas for sisters to live together.

This has not been updated, but look at the special interest groups that have specific housing: https://studentaffairs.duke.edu/hdrl...3vPbzfJLvn1PkM

At my sons' university, some groups like these have dorm halls set aside for them but they sure don't boot out the Greeks for them.
