Swarthmore College Faculty Letter on Fraternity Violence

We, as faculty, write in strong support of student concerns about fraternity violence.  As engaged scholars we are moved to request the following:  

1. Immediate cessation of all fraternity parties and social activities on campus.

2. Immediate termination of the fraternity leases on campus and re-purposing those spaces for community use.

3. That students' right to engage in direct and peaceful protest without fear of repercussions be protected.

At this juncture, approximately fifty Swarthmore faculty have signed this letter.
