Director of the Center for Fraternity and Sorority Life and associate dean of students Dan Welter will be honored at the upcoming Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education (NASPA) Annual Conference in Los Angeles, Calif. on March 11.

Welter will receive the Distinguished Service Award from the Fraternity and Sorority Knowledge Community. The award recognizes, “the outstanding contributions of individuals and teams within the field who have demonstrated long-term and significant contribution to the knowledge community and NASPA through their service, leadership, and programming.”

“Dan is a mentor that all of Panhellenic looked up to,” said Anna McLeod, former Panhellenic President. “He is so incredibly positive and works extremely hard with the leaders of the Greek community to keep the community moving forward. The Panhellenic Council, Interfraternity Council, and United Greek Council were able to make huge positive changes for our communities last year because of his commitment.”

Welter came to WSU in 2016 and is responsible for the oversight of over 60 active chapters and nearly 5,000 student members. Before coming to WSU, Welter served in student affairs at the University of Southern Maine, University of New England and the University of St. Thomas. He holds a Master of Arts in leadership and student affairs education from the University of St. Thomas, and a Bachelors of Sciences in medical biology from the University of New England.

“We are so excited that Dan has earned national recognition by his colleagues for his hard work and dedication to the service of students through fraternity and sorority life,” said Jill Creighton, associate vice-president of Student Affairs and dean of students. “We look forward to celebrating his accomplishment with both the WSU and NASPA communities.”
