Changes being made to sorority recruitment at the University of Alabama

TUSCALOOSA, AL -

Changes are being made to sorority recruitment at the University of Alabama.

This comes days after some sororities were accused of denying memberships to some black students.

University of Alabama President Judy Bonner, Ph.D. has mandated the use of what's called continuous open bidding for the school's sorority chapters.

This means, sororities can add new members outside of the former recruitment process. School leaders say this latest move is an effort to increase diversity in the organizations.

Previously, University of Alabama sororities could only have a membership of 355.  The school has now raised the membership maximum to 360. School leaders say they hope new members recruited will make the organizations more diverse.
