Cornell Black Students’ Group Demands Hate Speech Policy, Permanently Banning Psi Upsilon Frat House

Play

Black Students United, a student organization at Cornell University, is demanding the fraternity, Psi Upsilon be permanently banned from campus. This comes in reaction to a black Cornell junior being called the N-word, and then physically assaulted, sending the student to the hospital. Black Students United held a protest Wednesday and delivered demands to President Martha Pollack. The Psi Upsilon alumni board has told the school they’d close the chapter immediately. Cornell banned it last year for conduct code violations.
