Dartmouth's Alpha Delta fraternity and Delta Delta Delta sorority last month sponsored a "Crips and Bloods" theme party. Dartmouth is fully committed to fostering an environment that is diverse, welcoming, and inclusive. Incidents such as this, which violate our sense of community and mutual respect, have no place on our campus.
Dartmouth's student-run Greek Leadership Council is discussing educational initiatives and possible adoption of a policy and/or guidelines for themed events that better reflects the Greek community's commitment to hosting inclusive events.
Although Dartmouth does not have a policy prohibiting themed parties and events, all student organizations are required to comply with College Standards of Conduct and registration requirements for events involving alcohol. Dartmouth is continuing to gather information about the scope and nature of the event and will follow its standard process to review and determine whether any violations of College policy have occurred. The College is providing ongoing support and resources to students affected by this event.
