HIGH POINT, N.C., May 1, 2019 – High Point University is welcoming Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/Lambda Pi Chi sorority to campus.
HPU’s provisional chapter of Lambda Pi Chi was established on April 20. The organization’s mission is to empower women by providing a supportive network dedicated to personal and professional development.
As HPU’s first Latino-focused Greek organization, members hope to increase the visibility of the Latino community and contribute to the community at large. The organization will seek to educate members and others about the history and experiences, while simultaneously embracing the breadth of experiences of all women.
“As a founding member of the first ever Latina-based but not Latina-exclusive organization of any kind to be established at HPU, it means the world to me to be able to express and educate others about Latino culture,” says Brittany De Jesus, founding member of Lambda Pi Chi. “We are thankful for all the support we’ve received from others and are very excited to see this chapter grow.”
Lambda Pi Chi has more than 1,000 members nationwide. As a new organization on campus, Lambda Pi Chi will work towards achieving charter national recognition, host a variety of events and recruit new members. Membership is open to women from all backgrounds and not a Latina-exclusive organization.
