NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – The University of Oklahoma is expected to disclose the results of its investigation into a racist fraternity chant that was captured on video.

University President David Boren plans to discuss the Norman school’s findings at a news conference later Friday. The school has already disbanded its Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter and expelled two students who it said were leading the chant.

In the video, students on a bus can be seen taking part in a chant that includes references to lynching and to how the fraternity would never accept black members.

A lawyer for the SAE chapter said the week that an agreement had been reached in which no other members of the fraternity will be expelled.
