Supervision of UGA’s Office of Greek Life will be reassigned from Campus Life to a direct report in the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, according to announcement from Vice President Rodney Bennett.
The move means the Office of Greek Life, which previously reported to Campus Life, will now report to Eric Atkinson, assistant to the vice president. The change is effective Oct. 1.
Bennett said the move “will allow the vice president to directly shape services offered to students through the Office of Greek Life.”
The change in reporting lines happens to come at a time of transition as the Office of Greek Life seeks to fill three key vacancies.
Atkinson has been in student affairs administration at UGA for the past eight years. He is a graduate of Troy State University, where he was a fraternity member. He is pursuing a Ph.D. in student affairs administration at UGA.
Searches will begin soon to fill the vacant positions in the Office of Greek Life, according to Bennett.
