SigEp’s New Chapter Development teams work in partnership with university administrators and our alumni and volunteers to re-open dormant chapters and establish new chapters on college campuses around the country. Their end goal: to create an unmatched experience in the fraternity world.
When determining the best sites to re-open dormant chapters, our staff and National Board of Directors always look for a place where SigEp has the opportunity to create the antithesis of the fraternity stereotype. In order to do this, we know we need to work with dedicated alumni and volunteers and a supportive and innovative institution.
Our team will engage nearly 20 volunteers to support the new chapter on a day-to-day basis, implement a Balanced Man Program that utilizes university resources and other reputable tools like the DiSC assessment and StrengthsQuest, and work to involve faculty and graduate students to help connect information learned in the classroom to its application outside academic walls. We strive to show the student body on campuses we return to that the only way to have a fraternity experience is if it is based on development, respect and member safety.
In the 2017-18 academic year, Sigma Phi Epsilon will be returning home to the following campuses.
University of Vermont, Burlington, VT
Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL
