Lambda Pi Chi Expands to Campbell University

The second North Carolina expansion effort within one year

 


NEW YORK (2018) - Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Incorporated, a Latina based, and not exclusive, organization successfully expands to Campbell University in Buies Creek, North Carolina making the chapter the first National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations (NALFO) sorority on campus, and the second North Carolina expansion for the Sorority within one year.

 

 

On March 10, 2018, six students established the Campbell University Provisional Chapter of Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Incorporated. The efforts behind establishing the chapter answered a need to unify women through the promotion of programs that highlight the contributions of women and people of color with an emphasis on the U.S. Latina and offer opportunities for academic and professional advancement to members of historically underrepresented groups.

 

 

We are delighted to welcome the provisional chapter at Campbell University to our Hermandad (Sorority),” shares Melanie Castro, National Vice President of Expansion. “This milestone is thanks to an exemplary collaboration between the University Administration, Campbell women, and the Sorority. I am confident our new Hermanas (members), with the support of local alumnae, are going to thrive and bring impactful programming and zest to their communities.”

 

 

Bringing Lambda Pi Chi to campus was a joint effort supported by the Campbell Greek Office. Cassie Hughes Thomas, the former Campbell Assistant Director of Greek Life and Student Leadership, was instrumental in helping navigate the new environment and facilitating the various components needed to establish a new chapter. The Greek organizations on campus were incredibly supportive and welcoming to the Sorority to campus. The Sorority will continue to partner with campus Administration and working with other Greek letter organizations.

 

 

The Campbell University Provisional Chapter was successfully guided by current Hermanas Jacqueline Lopez, Osvelia Valverde, and Mishelle Duran; and was locally supported by Elaine Townsend Utin, Southeast Regional Expansion Chair; the Southeast Regional Board; and members from the North Carolina area.


 

The drive and determination that these women demonstrated throughout the past few months was astonishing. Their passion, resilience, and determination have been incredible to witness and I’m so excited to see the impact they have not only within our organization, but especially on Campbell’s campus as the first Latina-based sorority on campus,” says Jacqueline López, Chapter Intake Coordinator.
