Out & Greek Institute for LGBT & Ally Fraternity & Sorority Leaders — April 10 & 11, 2015
Campus Pride is the leading national educational organization for LGBT and ally college students and campus groups.

Since 2013, AFLV and Campus Pride have embarked on a strategic partnership to present the Out & Greek Institute in conjunction with AFLV West.
