Perspectives Magazine


As a quarterly magazine, Perspectives provides a forum for research, ideas, and information related to fraternities and sororities that:

  • is thought-provoking and innovative,
  • shares new information,
  • highlights best practices, and
  • challenges thought.

Perspectives promotes the exchange of various angles, arguments, contexts, and experiences to stimulate a deeper understanding of fraternity and sorority advising, education, programs, and policies.
