Senior Assistant Dean and Director of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs Tim Wilkinson will leave Lehigh on June 18, according to a post on the Lehigh Greeks blog.

Wilkinson, who has worked with the Lehigh fraternity and sorority community for the past 10 years, has been hired as Associate Dean for Student Engagement at Wake Forest University. According to the post, this new position will allow Wilkinson to move closer to his family, as he and his wife Allison Ragon, Lehigh’s assistant dean and director of First Year Experience, are expecting a baby.

The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs will conduct a national search involving students, faculty, staff and alumni in the coming weeks to find a candidate to serve as the new assistant dean and Director of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs.

“My time at Lehigh was incredible, and Wake Forest has provided me an opportunity to advance my career,” Wilkinson wrote in an email. “It’s bittersweet, because I care so much about the Lehigh community and the Greek community specifically.”

The blog post cited Wilkinson’s various accomplishments throughout his years at Lehigh, including his leadership of the Greek community during the university-wide Strengthening Greek Life initiative.

Wilkinson used his position to improve community-wide and chapter-specific operations, and develop relationships with a wide variety of university constituents. He was also committed to encouraging diversity and inclusion within the Greek system by serving on the Council of Equity and Community, creating educational initiatives, building a community of multicultural Greek chapters at Lehigh and launching the Greek Allies program.

“Greek Life is in a better place than it was a decade ago, and I am proud to be part of that,” Wilkinson said. “I am also excited that a new assistant dean will be able to come in and continue to move things forward.”
