A Message from our Headquarters:

Kappa Alpha Theta Takes a Stand


In early December, Kappa Alpha Theta and a coalition of sororities, fraternities, and students filed a federal lawsuit challenging Harvard’s sanctions policy that punishes students who join off-campus, single-sex social organizations—including Theta.
 
The impact of Harvard’s policy on women’s organizations has been devastating. It forced the college members of our Zeta Xi Chapter to make an impossible choice between holding leadership positions and applying for scholarships and fellowships or being members of communities specifically designed to support and empower college women to have those aspirations. We were proud of our Zeta Xi sisters, who advocated passionately for their freedom to choose their associations; unfortunately, Harvard’s sanctions make it impossible for Zeta Xi to continue operations as an active chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta. With deep sadness, Grand Council accepted the chapter charter this summer, relinquished by a unanimous vote of the active chapter members. 

You may be wondering why Theta is a plaintiff in this lawsuit if we no longer have a college chapter open to Harvard women. We can’t sit back and allow Harvard to set a precedent that could be followed by others. Under Harvard’s paternalism, its first lesson—especially to women students—is that they must surrender their rights.
 
You may also be wondering about the cost associated with this lawsuit. Kappa Alpha Theta has committed $50,000 for three years; our partner-plaintiffs, the National Panhellenic Conference, and the North-American Interfraternity Conference have pledged similar amounts, and the Fraternity and Sorority Action Fund is also contributing to this effort. Please be assured that programming support for Thetas and Theta chapters will not be affected, nor will dues and fees.

We need you to join Theta in standing up to Harvard! Share our social media posts with the hashtag #standuptoharvard, learn more on the Theta website, and visit standuptoharvard.org. We encourage you to address questions or concerns to standuptoharvard@kappaalphatheta.org
