SAN ANTONIO - Trinity University has unveiled the "Blueprint for Trinity's Fraternities and Sororities," a document designed to ensure the long term success of these organizations on the Trinity campus. Recently endorsed by Trinity's Board of Trustees, the Blueprint calls for four implementation committees, including the creation of a new fraternity and sorority committee on the National Alumni Board. Committee members are currently being recruited and appointed to:

  • A fraternity and sorority communication committee

  • A recruitment and orientation committee

  • A standards committee

  • An alumni and external relations committee

"Trinity is committed to creating a campus environment where fraternities and sororities thrive and contribute to the larger community and the Blueprint is a reflection of this commitment," said Michael Fischer, vice president for Faculty and Student Affairs. The Blueprint provides a framework to enhance sustainability of fraternities and sororities, increase alumni involvement with their active members, and improve communication among the University, alumni, and Trinity's fraternities and sororities.

The Blueprint is the result of many months of work by alumni, students, staff, Trustees, and University leadership. "We received valuable input from students, the Greek Council, the Greek Alumni Advisory Council, alumni leaders, and others," said Dave Mansen, president of the Trinity University Alumni Association and chair of the National Alumni Board (NAB). He welcomes the new NAB committee as a means to engage fraternity and sorority alumni on a broader level.
