Grier’s main issues are race relations, sexual assault and inclusion in the Greek community. Grier said he would like to see more interaction between the Greek councils, such as the Interfraternity Council and the National Pan-Hellenic Council.
David Sowers, Grier’s friend and a fraternity member, helped inspire Grier’s Greek community plan.
“We’ve talked a lot about how we could have some connection between the two organizations, ‘cause right now there’s not much, if any,” Sowers said.
Grier’s focus on race relations extends beyond the Greek community. He said his original perception of the University and its inclusivity was not the reality he found when he reached campus.
“I’m really hoping to bring that concept that Carolina prides itself on out of students,” Grier said.
Sexual assault and confronting the administration are at the forefront of Grier’s campaign.
As a survivor of sexual assault himself, Grier hopes to bring his own experience to the subject and develop a safe community for victims on campus.
“I won’t sit here and act like I have this foolproof plan on how we are gonna tackle this, but I can say that as a survivor of child sexual assault, I understand the different things associated with a living environment that doesn’t feel welcoming,” Grier said.
