West Virginia University is creating a new office and a new position to oversee fraternities and sororities.
Student Life vice president Bill Schafer said a national search will be conducted to fill the position of associate dean and director of Greek life.
Schafer tells The Associated Press that the person will oversee the new Greek Life office and will be under the Office of Student Conduct. The person will report directly to the dean of students.
Dean of Students Corey Farris says the position’s responsibilities will include working with the three Greek councils on campus.
WVU President E. Gordon Gee says the new office and position are part of an effort to change the university’s culture.
