Live-In Graduate Assistant Program 

Lehigh University is recruiting candidates who are prepared to support, educate, and engage residential fraternity and sorority members within a student-centered learning environment. We seek graduate students committed to the Five Foundations for Student Success: Creative Curiosity, Identify Development, Collaborative Connections, Inclusive Leadership, and Professional Growth and Success.

The Live-in Graduate Assistant (GA) is assigned to assist the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs (OFSA) in serving as a resource and paraprofessional mentor to Lehigh University fraternity and sorority residential communities. The Live-in GA assists their respective chapter through formal and informal interactions with the chapter officers and individual members. This position is open to any full-time graduate student enrolled in an accredited graduate program, and we would love to share this opportunity with the graduate students you work with. 

We look forward to starting the recruitment and selection process this month as we begin reaching out to graduate programs at Lehigh and other local accredited higher education institutions. The application is now live and is open any graduate student full-time enrolled in an accredited graduate program.
