Since 2019, the voices of Undergraduate Commissioners have been invaluable in guiding the Fraternity. These brothers represent their student peers with the Board of Trustees and, as of 2022, with the Foundation Board and General Fraternity House Corporation.

Recently named by General Secretary John Stebbins, Emory ’92, six brothers join continuing Undergraduate Commissioners Jack Corby, Elon ’22, and Nathan Satterfield, Michigan ’23, in their prestigious roles. The brothers have already immersed themselves in Fraternity business, having attended the February joint board meetings in Charlotte, as well as engaged with chapter presidents at CPLA in Chicago.

Foundation Board of Directors

Jack Corby, Elon ’22

Serving January 2022 to August 2023

Brother Jack was one of three brothers to be the first Undergraduate Commissioners to serve with the Foundation Board of Directors when the role was expanded in 2022. His first year in the role saw him working directly with two different Foundation committees and give input on legislation brought to the Convention floor. Previously, Jack has been a Foundation ambassador for the Giving Day Challenge and Sons of the Dragon Club.

“Most of the leadership experiences I’ve had beforehand worked on small changes and events,” Jack said, “but the UGC position is truly looking at the long-term impact and overall picture of the Fraternity experience.”

Originally from Alexandria, Virginia, Brother Jack graduated in May 2022 with a bachelor’s in policy studies, and is currently in Bulgaria teaching English as a second language as part of the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. While a student at Elon, he served as the executive president of the Student Government Association and earned membership into several honor societies. Jack led his chapter four two years as vice president of finance and vice president of programming.

“I’ve been able to meet Beta brothers I never would have,” Jack said. “I have grown professionally by attending board meetings and listening to the discussions there, and I have kept my Beta Spirit alive and well even after leaving my local chapter.”

Serving January 2023 to December 2023

Brother C.J. is pursuing a degree in management and human resources, marketing, leadership development and biology at John Carroll, and is from the greater Cleveland area.

Nathan Satterfield, Michigan ’23

Serving January 2022 to August 2023

As one of the first collegiate brothers to serve alongside the General Fraternity House Corporation, Brother Nathan offered the student perspective on housing strategies. Through the rest of his term, he plans on continuing to advocate for students to ensure chapter members feel safe and comfortable in their homes.

A senior from Chicago, Brother Nathan is graduating this spring with a degree in business administration and plans on working in equity research at Jefferies Financial Group in New York City. He is a former chapter president of the historic Lambda Chapter, and was the third-consecutive Beta to be named IFC president in 2022. His leadership has not only been highly sought after but also highly recognizable at Michigan, being named 2020-21 FSL Emerging Leader and 2021-22 IFC President of the Year.

“Being an undergraduate commissioner has pushed me to think from greater perspectives and has pushed me to understand the fraternity experience from not only the undergraduate perspective, but from the perspective of Beta alumni, other peer organizations, and the greater public,” Nathan said. “The role has also pushed me to think more broadly about various issues that I never had the chance to tackle during my time in chapter and IFC leadership roles.”
