Suspended Fraternity to Return

Suspended Fraternity to Return
To Western Illinois University Campus

A fraternity suspended from Western Illinois University for running a racially offensive advertisement will be allowed back on campus this fall.
An administrative review committee has concluded that Delta Tau Delta is taking steps to improve itself.
The all-White fraternity was suspended in September after a student newspaper ad showed its members posing with a Black lawn jockey ornament. Handcuffs were hanging from the ornament.
The fraternity was barred from taking part in homecoming, intramurals and other campus activities during the 2000-2001 school year.
In order to be considered for re-recognition after the school year, fraternity members were required to participate in diversity and multicultural programs. The group’s leaders will continue to be trained on such issues.
Since the suspension, a number of the group’s members have chosen to leave the fraternity, while others were not invited back.
