In the days before fraternites were banned from fraternite events on campus, a new policy was put in place that would ensure that students could feel safe at those gatherings.
But on Monday, a decision to ban fraternism was put into effect in the U.S. The National Conference of State Legislatures announced that it will vote to outlaw fraternities at the end of the school year.
The decision, which was expected to be made by the end, comes as a backlash against the fraternity ban grows.
Fraternities were banned in the United States in 1968, when President Lyndon Johnson ordered them banned after a fire at the University of Oklahoma killed nine people.
As part of the new policy, students who want to be members of a fraternity will need to be 18 years old.
They can’t become involved with a sorority, nor can they be involved in the development or operation of an activity, such as a dance, that involves a person of color.
That includes organizations that promote the black community or provide support for the LGBT community, such a Black Lives Matter organization.
Members of fraternies are banned from participating in student activities and activities at any other institution of higher learning.
They are also not allowed to participate in athletic events, on campus or off campus.
They have to register at the university.
“We are deeply troubled by this decision, and have reached out to our partners in the academic community to find ways to work with them to create a safe and respectful environment for all students,” NCSL president and CEO Stephen Schubert said in a statement.
“It is essential that we all feel safe and comfortable while on campus.
We have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for everyone on our campus, and to work together to create that environment for our students.”
Fraternities have long struggled to be accepted on campus because of concerns over their membership and membership of students of color and members of LGBTQ communities.
A ban is also expected to affect the academic program at U.C. Santa Barbara, which has more than 1,500 students and is one of the country’s top private universities.
The school has been in the news this year over sexual assault allegations against a senior student, who was expelled last week after he said he was sexually assaulted.
He said he left the school and is now on probation.
U.C.’s school of business is also preparing to implement new policies after a student who was a student of color was charged with sexual assault, according to the Santa Barbara Daily Press.
