College Station, TX: On February 4th, the chapters of the Texas A&M Interfraternity Council unanimously voted in support of endorsing S.R 71-23, a resolution advocating for the protection of single-gender social organizations (SGSOs). As a governing body of eighteen unique SGSOs, the Interfraternity Council stands with the Student Senate to condemn Harvard University for punishing students involved in SGSOs and to support initiatives to protect their rights to operate and persist. The Interfraternity Council hopes that such resolutions will preserve the mission of SGSOs to enhance individual character development and to serve the community selflessly, both of which are shared by Texas A&M and many other academic institutions.
