|Title:||Diversity and Discrimination Within the Greek System|
|Abstract:||This project aims to answer the following questions: How has the University of Illinois’s Greek system accommodated for a vast and diverse student body? Is racism exhibited regularly within the Greek community, during the rush process, sorority events, and daily life inside the houses? Can minorities feel fully accepted in the Greek system without experiencing a sense of “not belonging?” Based on three interviews and participant observation, the study shows that diversity in sororities could be increased, and recommends a more in-depth study of recruiting processes and discrimination.|
