Miranda named director of Greek affairs


Miranda

T he Office of Residential Life and the Division of Student Affairs have appointed Monica Lee Miranda as the director of Greek affairs.

Miranda comes to Rochester from SUNY at Albany where she held the title of student activities associate. Her duties included primary responsibility for programming and advising the Panhellenic Association, Interfraternity Council, Multicultural Greek Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council, the Latino Greek Council, and the 41 organizations represented by these councils. Her other responsibilities included oversight of the information desk, advising class councils, and coordinating the University's leadership awards program.

Miranda also received her degrees from Albany: a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish and psychology, plus a Master of Science in education administration and policy studies with a higher-education concentration.

During her graduate program, Miranda supervised the CHARGE Cultural Program within Albany's residential life and housing department, and worked as a resident director and teaching assistant in Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's HEOP/BRIDGE Summer Institute. But her Greek affiliation goes back even further to her undergraduate days: As a member and officer of Albany's Omega Phi Beta sorority, she was recognized with a range of Greek and student leadership awards.

Today, Miranda is involved with the main Greek professional association--the Association of Fraternity Advisors--and serves as national vice president of both the National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations and her own sorority, Omega Phi Beta. As a recognized leader in the Latino Greek movement, she has published articles in publications such as Minority MBA Magazine and the Urban Latino Magazine, and presents regionally and nationally on a variety of topics. In September, she will be published in The World and I magazine, a monthly published by The Washington Times. She also is certified as a prejudice reduction trainer by the National Coalition Building Institute.
