Sigma Alpha Mu Fraternity Controversy

Controversy at Chapman University has been brewing since the college decided to introduce a new fraternity in 2006. Sigma Alpha Mu, an historically Jewish fraternity was not selected to be formally recognized. The group continued to organize and meet as an off-campus, non-recognized fraternity. Image File history File links Gnome_globe_current_event. ...

Joseph Kertes, Dean of Students in a letter dated September 22, 2006 ordered the students not to meet or assemble on campus even to carpool for off-campus events. http://www.ocregister.com/news/chapman-university-students-1877203-campus-fraternity http://www.zoa.org/publications/ZOAChapmanDotiOct07.pdf They were also ordered to remove their page from Facebook.com and to not wear clothing on campus identifying their affiliation with Sigma Alpha Mu. A Chapman student admitted in a September 14, 2007 article in the Los Angeles Jewish Journal that her sorority was told to report any members of Sigma Alpha Mu seen congregating on campus. http://www.jewishjournal.com/home/searchview.php?id=18193 An investigation by the ACLU concluded that the students' rights were violated. http://aclu-sc.org/attach/c/chapman_univ_letter.pdf</ref> The ACLU has called on Chapman President James Doti to rescind the free speech restrictions. http://www.aclu-sc.org/News/#102616</ref> The ZOA has requested that President Doti also issue a personal apology on behalf of his administration to the students seeking to establish the Jewish fraternity.

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), founded in 1897, was one of the first official Zionist organizations in the United States, and, especially early in the 20th century, the primary representative of the Jews of the United States to the World Zionist Organization, espousing primarily Political Zionism. ...


It is however to be noted on the other side of this controversy that fraternities have strict guidelines when it comes to colonization that the SAM chapter failed to comply with. The Hillel Foundation on campus was largely also not in favor of this move due to a relatively small number of Jews on campus. It is important to be noted that many of the Jewish students on campus never took this as a human rights denial issue, but a logistics issue.

On March 20, 2007 a Chapman student filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education's Family Policy Compliance Office against Chapman University for the improper disclosure of personal information by Dean of Students Joseph Kertes.
