Introducing the 2016-17 Consultants

INDIANAPOLIS, Apr. 20, 2016 - With a number of expansions planned for the 2016-2017 academic year and an enhanced approach to chapter development on the horizon, the Phi Kappa Psi consultant model has changed to fit evolving needs. After a successful consultant recruitment period, the Fraternity is eager to announce new hires and a new consultant structure.

Two consultants are stepping into the Senior Educational Leadership Consultant role: Nicholas Dorsey (Akron '15) and Zachary Herge (Toledo '10). After a consultant visit, both men will follow-up with chapters and stakeholders to set goals and ensure long-term success. They will be charged with organizing and providing additional resources for chapters in need and will provide mentorship to first-year consultants.

Following a successful year on the road, Dile Wilson (IUPUI '12) returns to staff as a second-year Expansion Consultant. Benjamin Sigler (BGSU '10) also returns as a second-year Educational Leadership Consultant.

"All four of our returning consultants bring a level of professionalism and passion for the organization that will no doubt provide our new consultants with excellent guidance," said Director of Chapter Services, Michael Morin (Loyola '11).

Along with the returning consultants, eight new staff members have been hired:

With a traveling staff of 12 members, Phi Kappa Psi plans to visit each chapter at least twice by the end of the 2016-2017 academic year. Both the Expansion and Educational Leadership Consultants will be instrumental in upcoming expansion projects, providing consistent and valuable support.

Phi Kappa Psi also recognizes the hard work and dedication of four consultants who are departing staff this May: Conner Boyd (Oregon State '12), Parker Laba (UC-Irvine '11), Jordan Nabizadeh (Loyola '12) and Nathan Whisman (Wabash '10).
