Roy Baker To Leave Position For West Virginia University

Dr. Roy Baker, the Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life at Penn State, will leave his position at the end of the month for West Virginia University.
Baker has been with the university since 2007. Before coming to Penn State he worked as the Associate Dean of Students at Syracuse.
“We’re grateful for Roy’s decade of service to Penn State and the leadership and guidance he has provided to the fraternity and sorority community,” Damon Sims, vice president of Student Affairs, said of Baker. “No one at Penn State has more longstanding connections to the national landscape for Greek-letter organizations, and no one has been more committed to sustaining the traditions of these groups than Roy.”
“I want fraternity men and sorority women to understand how great they are and what a great system we have,” Baker said in an interview with Onward State in 2009. Baker has seen a number of scandals make national headlines during his time as director, namely Chi Omega and Kappa Delta Rho to name a few.
“His presence at Penn State will continue to have an impact long after he moves on to West Virginia,” Sims said.
The university did not comment on the timeline for hiring a new director, who will also take Baker’s seat on the Greek life task force.
