A group of 27 student senators blocked a bill to fully integrate fraternities at the establishment from reaching a public vote, with just five in favour, and two abstentions.

It has sparked outrage as critics blast the ‘backwards’ state of student societies more than half a century after the university first granted black students entry…

The resolution had proposed ‘the complete integration of all Greek letter fraternities and sororities at the University of Alabama, with respect to social diversity among its membership’.

Though it would not have had the power to change the Greek system’s policy, the amendment was billed as a statement that the student body supports integration.
