Evan Englander joined the FASA team in July of 2017 and is excited to be a part of Orange Nation. He is fervent about turning thoughts into actions and actions into experiences for the students he gets the pleasure to interact with. This passion began brewing during his experience in Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity at SUNY (State University of New York) Oneonta. His love and belief in the power of fraternity drives him to work with students to make their fraternity/sorority experience the best they can be.

As the Assistant Director of FASA he hopes to have opportunity to redefine the fraternal experience for students through innovative and new programs, as well as work through the daily issues of chapter leadership within a historic Greek Community. Evan also works as a facilitator for NovakTalks, a consulting and advocacy group for campus safety, hazing prevention, student risk management and student organization development with college students across the country. Previously, Evan was the Assistant Director for Residential Fraternities at Washington State University, where he was named Organization Advisor of the Year by the Associated Students of Washington State University (ASWSU). Having previously worked in leadership programs and Diversity Affairs, Evan’s approach to fraternity/sorority life is one centered on making our organizations more welcoming, diverse, safe, and educational places to grow as a person.

Evan earned his Bachelor of Science in Mass Communications and Communication Studies from SUNY Oneonta and his Master’s in Higher and Postsecondary Education from Teachers College, Columbia University. He is a certified Ladder of Risk facilitator, a graduate of the Interfraternity Institute and a chapter advisor for his chapter of Phi Psi at SUNY Oneonta.
