Inside the Ivy: Hazing Allegations and Discrimination

Brown’s men’s swim team barred from Championships #busted

The men’s swimming and diving team for Brown University will not be participating in the Ivy League Championship due to an investigation into hazing allegations against the team.

The Brown Daily Herald reports, “in addition, the team’s schedule no longer lists the National Collegiate Athletic Association Swimming and Diving Championships, which will take place in March. The women’s team schedule still lists these meets.”

The men’s team roster also removed the two senior captains that were previously listed.

Sexual assault and guns may be the hot issues of the moment, but homophobia is still a problem

Harvard University’s Office of Student Life has placed the religious group Harvard College Faith and Action (HCFA) on probation after the organization forced a female member of its student leadership to step down because she was dating a woman.

The Harvard Crimson reports, “the decision to suspend HCFA, though, is almost certainly tied to the Sept. 2017 resignation of a female bisexual former assistant Bible course leader. HCFA leadership asked the woman to step down from her position after they learned she was dating another female student—violating guidelines laid out in the Harvard College Student Handbook, which stipulates recognized campus student groups cannot discriminate on the basis of ‘sexual orientation.'”

Confirmation of this order of events came from 12 current and former members of HCFA as well as documents, emails and text messaged obtained and reviewed by the Crimson.
