UWindsor distances itself from fraternity after circulation of hateful messages

November 30, 2020

The Delta Chi fraternity at the University of Windsor, which has US-based leadership and is not officially affiliated with the institution, has allegedly circulated hateful private Facebook messages. CBC reports that the messages were uncovered by two university anti-racism groups. The article states that the messages included racist and Anti-Black comments, comments that promoted violence, and other offensive language. UWindsor has suspended the fraternity’s ability to book space on campus, and has contacted the fraternity’s US leadership and the police. The student community expressed outrage and UWindsor President Rob Gordon condemned the messages as “disturbing, unacceptable, and entirely incongruent with the values of our school and the work we are doing to create a more inclusive and equitable community at the University of Windsor.” CBC | UWindsor (ON)
