Chris Graham Elected President of the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors

Chris Graham, director of sorority and fraternity life at Florida State University, has been elected to serve as president of the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors. The mission of AFA is to enhance its members’ abilities to foster impactful fraternity/sorority experiences with the changing dynamics and enduring principles of higher education.

As the director of Fraternity and Sorority Life at Florida State, Graham leads and oversees one of the largest fraternal communities in the country, with more than 40 chapters and 6,000 members. Graham is the first Black man and the youngest person ever elected president of the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors. He will serve a two-year term.

“I’m incredibly honored to have the opportunity to serve as president of the AFA,” Graham said. “To do so as the first Black man is humbling, considering the shoulders I stand on within the fraternal industry. I believe being nominated and elected to this role is confirmation that the leadership I’ve provided at FSU and within the fraternal industry is meaningful and continues to make a difference.”

Graham was appointed assistant director of Greek life at Florida State in 2014. He was promoted to director of sorority and fraternity life in 2016. Graham is a graduate of Winston-Salem State University in North Carolina, where he majored in physical education teaching and coaching. He earned a master’s degree in college counseling from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
