COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The University of Missouri wants to hire a full-time director of Greek Life because of the increasing number of fraternity and sorority members on campus.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/2dS6rRx ) that Janna Basler, a senior associate of Student Life, is currently doing the job of director of Greek Life. Basler was placed on administrative leave Nov. 11 after a video showed her physically confronting a photographer during a demonstration on campus. She returned to work in early December.

University spokesman Christian Basi reports Basler will keep her current job.

Basi says in 2015, 27 percent of undergraduates - or 7,600 students - belonged to fraternities and sororities. That’s an increase from 21 percent in 2005.
