Indianapolis, December 12, 2016—Exhibiting strong commitment to emerging and culturally-based fraternities, the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) welcomes Veronica Moore to its team.

As the Director of Emerging & Culturally-Based Fraternal Initiatives, Moore will develop educational programs for these NIC groups, as well as focus on their advocacy within higher education. She will advance collaboration, resources and services to support the continued growth and development of organizations in the Fraternity Growth Accelerator, an initiative established in the historic NIC 2.0 reforms.

Moore is joining the staff after completing her term as President of the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors earlier this month. In her six years on the AFA board, she helped create and implement the organization’s strategic framework and led it to unprecedented growth.

“As a member of a culturally-based sorority who has strong interfraternal leadership experience under her belt, Veronica is the perfect person to help us establish these programs,” said Judson Horras, NIC President and CEO.

In its first year, this will be a part-time position with the intention of expanding it to a full-time role as the initiatives evolve. Delta Upsilon International Fraternity recently hired Moore and is sharing her time with the NIC for initial program development.

“We are thrilled we have the opportunity to partner with our interfraternal friend, Delta Upsilon,” said Horras.

Moore has more than 10 years of professional experience in higher education. She most recently worked as Associate Director of Student Activities at Temple University in Philadelphia, where she developed a chapter assessment program, established a framework for community operations, and grew the community and its councils through intentional expansion. Additionally, in her five years as the Assistant Director of Fraternity & Sorority Affairs at Lehigh University, Veronica created valuable educational resources, helped grow the multicultural fraternal community, enhanced the chapter educational and assessment plan, and developed relationships with campus partners and faculty from multiple disciplines.

“I’m excited for this opportunity because of the NIC’s intentionality to make sure all groups are successful as it seeks to improve fraternal communities across North America,” said Moore. “It’s important for emerging and culturally-based organizations to have awareness of and access to resources, and through my role, I hope to help these fraternities increase their positive impact.”

Moore became a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. at Carthage College. She earned her master’s degree in College Student Counseling and Personnel Services at Western Illinois University. She will work from her home in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and will begin her role with the NIC in January 2017.
