Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Social fraternities and sororities have frequently been the targets of public criticism. One of the reasons for this criticism is the belief that social fraternities and sororities promote racism (Goettsch & Hayes, 1990). In this paper, perceptions of cultural diversity within social fraternities and sororities are examined. The focus is primarily on perceptions of sorority and fraternity members toward African-Americans. The first section will present an historical overview of social fraternities and sororities. Next, attitudes regarding racial prejudice in social fraternities and sororities is reviewed. The paper concludes with recommendations based on the research presented in the previous section.
