We're writing to share bittersweet news. Corey Gant, Assistant Director of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs, will be leaving us this month for an incredible opportunity as the Director of Greek Life with Washington and Lee. In this new position, Corey will provide guidance and support to Washington and Lee’s 20-chapter fraternity and sorority community alongside its three governing councils. He will also serve as the primary catalyst in facilitating officer transitions, developmental programming, and hazing prevention and risk management initiatives for members of the fraternity and sorority community.
During Corey’s tenure at Lehigh, he has served as the advisor to the Interfraternity Council alongside 10 fraternities and sororities. Under his guidance, the Interfraternity Council worked to reconsider its role within the greater Lehigh community; explored opportunities to enhance transparency, responsibility, and accountability; and made a conscious effort to dig into difficult conversations and make unpopular, yet groundbreaking, decisions. Corey is also the brainchild behind OFSA’s hazing prevention and new member education efforts, and he developed the curriculum for new member orientation sessions targeting 400+ students each spring semester. Corey’s also challenged himself to better understand hazing behavior and its connection to masculinity, vulnerability, alcohol misuse, and other concepts, and this has greatly informed his work and our office’s signature programs in these areas. Corey’s involvement also extends far beyond the fraternity and sorority community, as he’s worked closely with others across campus via the Pride Center (co-advising Greek Allies), the Spirit Committee, and the Student Affairs Professional Development Committee among others.
We’re incredibly grateful to have called Corey a colleague, advisor and friend. Please join us in congratulating Corey on this well-deserved opportunity. His last day will be Friday, June 22, 2018.
Our team will be in touch across the summer as we shift Corey's responsibilities to other staff members. In the meantime, please feel free to contact Ash Baudouin via email at email@example.com should you require assistance.
