In Support of a GLBTQA Organization at Hampton University sign now

In a letter dated December 20th, 2007, the student and faculty representatives of Hampton University Students Promoting Equality, Action & Knowledge, a gay-straight student alliance, were informed that their organization was ineligible for on-campus recognition. Though the letter did not mention any specific reason why this was so, it went on to state that the organization could reapply for recognition after a two-year period. When the student and faculty representatives questioned this stipulation, they were told only that it was the official policy of the university. They were not provided any documentation confirming this stipulation, and were not given any other recourse for appeal. With all due respect, we feel that the manner in which this was handled was unacceptable and unprofessional. This policy is not documented in the official Hampton University Student Handbook. We are against rules and stipulations that govern, yet are inaccessible to the student body, and as such, we are requesting that the university release evidence and documentation confirming that the two-year policy is indeed a rule. Additionally, we are requesting a written explanation explaining the specific reasons why HU SPEAK was denied recognition. Lastly, and most importantly, we are requesting that HU SPEAK be granted the right to appeal this decision--which we feel was not made with good and fair judgment--immediately.
