Pillar Advocates are fraternity/sorority members who wish to serve as resources to current and prospective members. Advocates can answer questions about navigating recruitment and membership, connect you to other LGBTQ* fraternity/sorority members, or simply provide a social connection.
Pillar Advocates are expected to contribute to a safe and welcoming environment for our LGBTQ community and to advance such goals within their respective organizations.
Meet Our Spring 2023 Pillar Advocates!
