WASHINGTON – the George Washington University student leaders have called for the expulsion of an association whose members were involved in a racist Snapchat post.
News outlets report that the student association Senate unanimously adopted a resolution Monday in search of Alpha Phi’s removal and a host of new diversity initiatives.
The Snapchat spread last week depicted two Alpha Phi members with a banana peel, and characterized by a racist caption.
The university of President Thomas LeBlanc told student newspaper The GW Hatchet on Tuesday, he is aware of the resolution, but the sanctions have not yet been identified, pending the investigation.
The university Alpha Phi chapter, said in a statement Friday it will terminate the membership of the photographer and the students displayed.
A 19-year-old woman turned away from the University of Alabama in the last month for racist Instagram post was also a member of Alpha Phi.
