“This Was a White People’s Game… They Were the Gatekeepers”: Experiences of Fraternity/Sorority Professionals of Color
In this narrative inquiry, interviews from eight campus fraternity/ sorority professionals who identify as people of color and who are members of culturally based fraternities and sororities were interviewed on how they experience their profession. Findings spoke to themes of guest in your own home, advocacy through presence, the complexity of representation matters, and turning burden into purpose. Overall participants spoke about caring deeply for their role given the challenges and obstacles that race and racism played and navigating systems and people that did not always value their experience.
