But Inside Higher Ed says that it is for a "chant deemed to be sexually harassing"? Inside Higher Ed badly needs to grow a pair.
On Yale's part, however, this is very nice to see--and in striking contrast to the hand-wringing about how free speech rights kept the university from doing anything about AutoAdmit.
Membership in a university should carry with it duties as well as privileges--and perhaps the best thing a university can teach a 20-year old male is that you have a duty not to act like a complete jackass:
Quick Takes: Yale Fraternity Punished for Chant Deemed to be Sexually Harassing - Inside Higher Ed: For violating Yale’s undergraduate regulations on “harassment, coercion or intimidation” and “imperiling the integrity and values of the university community,” the campus chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon is prohibited for five years from “conducting any fraternity activities on campus,” including recruiting, and from using Yale bulletin boards or e-mail to communicate with students. The sanctions also “severely limit its use of the Yale name in connection with the DKE organization.” The committee that issued the sanctions, which is charged with enforcing the undergraduate regulations, also formally recommended that the national fraternity organization suspend the chapter for five years. Some students face additional punishments, but those are confidential under Yale and federal privacy laws. Yale College Dean Mary Miller said it is unusual to announce the committee's findings, but because the incident made a huge stir on the campus and attracted national attention, she sent a statement to all students and faculty of the college. The university itself is under federal investigation after a student complaint under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, alleged a sexually hostile climate on campus.
