In addition to sanctions from the sorority, the student may face discipline from the university. Deborah Lane, associate vice president for university relations, told the student newspaper “the University of Alabama is extremely disappointed when any student uses language that is disrespectful or offensive to any segment of the UA community. Behavior, actions and choices that disparage other students are particularly reprehensible and do not represent the values or meet the expectations of our University community.”
