Greek life receives additional staff support


Proposals include creation of a Greek alumni council

In a drive to better support U of R’s Greek organizations in particular and student activities in general, Student Affairs (formerly Student Life) has reorganized and will look to alumni for further assistance.

“The Greeks contribute in so many positive ways to the University and to the local community—through community service, fundraising for worthy causes, support of athletic teams, and more,” says U of R Senior Associate Dean Ken Grcich. “We are committed to the growth, advocacy, and support of the Redlands Greek community.”

Following the recommendations of an external consultant, the responsibilities for supporting fraternities and sororities are now spread across several staff members, providing more resources for the groups.

In addition, Grcich and his colleagues hope to enlist alumni support to create a Greek alumni council to assist in developing policies, training, oversight, and expectations in conjunction with Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Council. “Ongoing engagement between alumni and current membership is key to this effort,” he says.

If you would like to become more involved in U of R’s Greek life, contact Grcich, or 909-748-8243, or Assistant Director of Alumni and Community Relations Amber De Massimo, or 909-748-8011.
