Consideration of Greek system at UMW on hold

University of Mary Washington - UMWFREDERICKSBURG, Va. (AP) _ The University of Mary Washington’s consideration of establishing a Greek fraternity and sorority system is on hold. President Richard Hurley has placed a moratorium on the proposal. The Free Lance-Star (http://bit.ly/1tzCCWk ) reports that Hurley announced the moratorium on Monday in a university-wide email. Hurley says it’s not the time to move forward on establishing a Greek system. The decision comes in the wake of an article published last month by Rolling Stone magazine that described a woman’s account of a gang rape at a University of Virginia frat house. Hurley says he has created a 15-member task force to recommend a plan that will ensure the University of Mary Washington is resolute in addressing issues of sexual assault.
