About Charles
I have worked for the students of West Chester University for the past 25 years, the last few years as the Director of Student Leadership & Involvement. I am a proud Lynchburg College hornet where I received both my bachelor and master degrees, but also feel like I am a Ram in spirit after being here so long. Lynchburg provided great involvement opportunities for me and set me on the course towards higher education. I started my career as the Greek Affairs Coordinator for Longwood College (now University) in Virginia and then moved up here to WCU. I have had the privilege to serve both the Association of Fraternity Advisors as National President and my fraternity affiliation, Beta Theta Pi, in a variety of roles culminating in serving as the General Secretary from 2006-2009. I currently serve Beta Theta Pi as Regional Chief of the Mid-Atlantic Region. The student body at WCU is amazing and I encourage you to take advantage of Your Leadership University.
