The fact that four predominately Caucasian sororities of the National Pan-Hellenic Conference (NPC) are having houses built when no historically black sororities of the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) are has caused uproar amongst students and faculty alike at Arkansas State University.
In a recent letter to the editor of the school’s newspaper, an associate professor of public administration, wrote, “Where are the houses for the predominantly black sororities? How will that look to young African American females visiting the campus?”
To make the situation worse, some faculty along with two African-American fraternities, Phi Beta Sigma and Alpha Phi Alpha, have been forced to relocate from their houses in order to accommodate the new sorority housing.
Read more of the story here. The fact remains that sororities outside of the NPHC seem to have more campus housing then those within, especially on the campuses of PWIs. Wonder why…. Did your campus have housing for black sororities? Do members of the NPHC need to be more fiscally sound?
