Undergrad Leaders Develop Plan of Action for Racism in Penn Greek Life

First was the “gangsta”-themed mixer and then the holiday photo fiasco. While both of these incidents were deeply concerning on a cultural awareness level, one of the greatest problems that became apparent afterwards was the lack of a system of recourse for both Greek and non-Greek Penn students to report incidents of potential cultural insensitivity.
