Fraternity Expansion Announcement

Good Afternoon All,

We are excited to announce that the Interfraternity Council at Lehigh University will be moving forward with the expansion of our fraternity community in the fall 2014 semester. The purpose of this expansion effort is to continue the goal of providing a myriad of options within the community to meet the ever changing needs of our undergraduate student population.

The University will be giving priority to those organizations that are fundamentally committed to espousing Jewish culture and heritage. Additional consideration will be given to organizations that have had active chapters on campus in the past.  The relationship with those groups is a valued part of the future of the fraternity community at Lehigh.  However, this will not automatically “disqualify” any organization which submits materials.  Additionally, any fraternity expansion at Lehigh will not include a residential facility, and there will be no plans or timeline in place to convert any newly recognized non-residential chapters to residential chapters.

Questions about this process may be directed to Jessi McPherrin, Assistant Director of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs, at or 610.758.4157.
