Fraternity and Sorority Advisers

Trinity's fraternities and sororities are self-governed, though each organization selects alumni advisers and most choose a faculty or staff adviser with whom it collaborates throughout the year.

The faculty, staff, and alumni advisers who step up to help guide, mentor, and assist the fraternities and sororities are an asset to the community. Each is committed to working with students, fellow alumni, and representatives of the University.

Adviser Resources

Advisers can access resources and become familiar with relevant campus procedures and policies via the Fraternity and Sorority Life Alumni Adviser Resource Manual (PDF).
