Athens, Ga. – Jared Pacileo has been named senior coordinator for Greek Life and advisor to the Interfraternity Council at the University of Georgia. Pacileo’s appointment is effective June 1.
“We are so excited to welcome Jared to the Greek Life team,” said Claudia Shamp, director of Greek Life. “He offers exceptional skill in leadership development, group facilitation and judicial processes.”
“I am excited to work at a university that strongly supports its students in all aspects,” Pacileo said. “During my graduate work, I have seen some of the rewards and challenges of serving such a large community of students in fraternity and sorority life, and I am looking forward to this new experience in Athens.”
Greek Life, a department within the Division of Student Affairs, provides fraternities and sororities with educational programs and services that create, promote and foster a learning community. The Interfraternity Council is one of five self-governing and self-supported leadership councils for UGA’s Greek-lettered organizations, along with the Greek Council, Multicultural Greek Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council and Panhellenic Council. The councils coordinate events, provide educational programs and establish community-wide policies for their member organizations.
In addition to advising IFC, its executive board and 26 fraternities, as well as managing IFC’s budget, Pacileo will coordinate the IFC recruitment program, serve as a university liaison with chapter advisors, house corporations, local and community stakeholders, alumni and national organizations, serve as the primary contact for fundraising efforts for IFC and work cooperatively with the staff advisors and student leaders of the other councils.
In this role, he will provide leadership for the promotion of learning and the development of support services, programs and resources in areas such as risk management issues, scholarship, officer training, chapter management and development, membership recruitment, new member orientation and education, sexual responsibility and diversity.
“One of the biggest things that attracted me to UGA is that it is an institution made up of high-achieving students who have many different opportunities to get involved and succeed” he said.
Pacileo earned his Bachelor of Arts in history from Mississippi State University and will complete his Master of Arts in higher education administration from the University of Alabama this May.
