Arno Rosenfeld, Ubyssey, September 7, 2013– [University of British Columbia] UBC announced Saturday that they will investigate whether Commerce Undergraduate Society (CUS) leaders told volunteers to keep an offensive chant within their orientation groups.

In a statement released by Robert Helsley, dean of UBC’s Sauder School of Business, and UBC’s VP Students Louise Cowin, the university pledged to investigate the chant.

“The Sauder School of Business and the Office of the Vice-President, Students will jointly conduct a thorough investigation of these reports. Any disciplinary measures will follow the university’s policy on discipline for non-academic misconduct,” the statement read.
