Advocacy

Leading Fraternal Advocacy An effective advocacy campaign is not conducted in a silo, nor is it a single project. The NIC continuously collaborates with partners, educates stakeholders about the benefits of fraternity membership, and advocates for the fraternal movement. Everything that NIC engages in is centered around advocacy. It is important that NIC member fraternities support the NIC advocacy efforts through their continued promotion of those behaviors which are reflective of the best tradition of excellence of their organizations and immediately and effectively address situations that occur which are contrary to those traditions. This will increase NIC advocacy effectiveness. The critical audiences for our advocacy are: Higher education The primary environments in which fraternities operate are colleges and universities. The 800+ institutions across North America are a general audience with the Chief Student Affairs Officer (Vice President for Student Affairs and/or Dean of Students) and the fraternity/sorority professional as the specific stakeholders.

Media The NIC serves as an industry spokesperson for national, regional, and local outlets and monitors media coverage for stories related to fraternity. The media is an important constituent that impacts and influences fraternal advocacy efforts. The NIC will closely monitor member fraternity news and may notify organizations when alerts are received. This is done...
