The director of the Office of Fraternity and Sorority life for the past school year, Jazmyn Pulley, has left the position.
OFSL is currently without a director and is being temporarily led by Associate Vice Provost for Student Affairs Tamara Greenfield King. Pulley assumed the postion in July 2018 after a six-month search for a new director and left in April, according to her LinkedIn profile. She wrote in an email that she is "not comfortable" commenting on the reasons for her departure at this time.
At the time of Pulley's appointment, OFSL had experienced frequent turnovers in the staff leadership over the past several years, then-Intercultural Greek Council President Rio Dennis said. At the beginning of last school year, Pulley said in an interview with The Daily Pennsylvanian that she was looking forward to sticking around for a while.
“That is my goal — just to stay here as long as possible and really give it my all because I think this community has enough going on," Pulley said. "It's large enough and I think the staff is large enough that I could be here years and years and still learn something new and do something new.”
Pulley filled the vacancy in the position when Eddie Banks-Crosson stepped down as OFSL director in January 2018. He is now director of Wharton's MBA Office of Student Life. Banks-Crosson joined OFSL as director in August 2015, succeeding Scott Reikofski, who led the OFSL team for 20 years before he retired.
Pulley is now interim director of Fraternity and Sorority Life at East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania, where she worked as assistant director of Student Activities from 2012 to 2014, according to her LinkedIn. She came to Penn from Columbia University, where she served as associate director of Fraternity and Sorority Life.
King, who is temporarily leading OFSL, said she is now "working closely with OFSL staff and student leaders."
Wharton senior and Panhellenic Council President Claire Canestrino said that Greek life leaders were informed of Pulley's departure last semester. She said she does not know the reason for Pulley's sudden departure.
Helen Xu, who was the associate director for diversity at OFSL, left a month after Pulley, according to her LinkedIn profile. She is now associate director of advising at the Penn School of Nursing. Xu did not respond to an immediate request for comment.
