Bradley M. “Brad” Bundy

(Epsilon Lambda–Miami ’18)

Brother Brad Bundy initially served as the Faculty Advisor of the Epsilon Lambda Chapter at Miami University beginning in 2015. His two sons, Ryan and Evan were both members of the Epsilon Lambda Chapter, and Brother Bundy was initiated into Epsilon Lambda and Our Order in 2018. He would later serve as the chapter’s Alumnus Advisor but had to step away from that volunteer position in the Spring of 2022 when Miami University President Greg Crawford promoted him to the position of Vice President of University Advancement.

In 2017, Kappa Alpha recognized Brother Bundy for his efforts and awarded him the Faculty Advisor of the Year Award at their Convention in St. Louis.

As past Province Commander Brother Love can attest, Brother Brundy was one of the top 3-5 Alumnus Advisors he had the pleasure to appoint and work with during his 25 years. Brother Bundy was fully engaged with the Epsilon Lambda Chapter and advised them through some touchy risk management issues as well as stood in the background while the chapter won numerous campus and KA national awards.

In addition to his sons Ryan and Evan. His daughters Megan and Katey are also Alumni of Miami University.

Professionally, Brother Bundy has worked at the top of his field and has been recognized by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education’s (CASE) (the trade association for university fundraisers) highest honor – The Distinguished Service Award.
