June 14, 2011: Oxford, Ohio—Chief Learning Officer Tom Jeswald, Ohio ’63, announces Ray Carlos, Cal State-Fullerton ’01, as the new Regional Conference dean. Carlos’ service in this role is effective immediately.

Carlos earned a bachelor’s in broadcast journalism from California State University, Fullerton and a master’s in communication studies radio/TV/film from Indiana State University. He currently works as the associate director in the Office for Fraternity and Sorority Leadership Development at the University of Southern California. In this role, Carlos oversees 62 chapters and six councils, as well as Order of Omega.

Carlos is very involved with the Fraternity and has served in various volunteer roles, most recently as the Golden Bear South Domain Director. Due to Carlos’ appointment as Regional Conference dean, he officially resigned his Domain Director position on June 13, 2011. His service to Beta Psi chapter at Cal State-Long Beach, Gamma Omicron chapter at Cal State-Fullerton, Delta Tau chapter at Cal Poly-Pomona and Epsilon Sigma chapter at Chapman has also been commendable.

“While we are sad to lose an outstanding Domain Director, we are all excited about the positive impact Ray will have on Regional Conferences,” said Coordinator of Volunteer Development Tyler Wash, Georgetown ’06. “His dedication and skills will serve to make that program the top quality officer training conference that Phi Kappa Tau needs.”

For the past five years (2007-11), Carlos has been an outstanding ambassador for the Fraternity and as a Domain Director, he has impacted the lives of countless members. There is no doubt he will continue this remarkable service as a dean.

“I remember how influential the West Coast Road Trip Regional Conference was when I attended as an undergraduate,” Carlos said. “I met some of my best friends from other chapters during the conference. I believe these conferences not only bring chapters together, but also supply the knowledge and empowerment that our officers need. I’m looking forward to continuing the longstanding tradition of excellence at these conferences.”
