Important Publications

Sigma Alpha Epsilon encourages you to read several of our award-winning publications so that you may become familiar with our policies, procedures and programs that impact our collegiate members. The links provided in this section exist both in the digital format that we present here and in hard-copy format upon request. These items may be requested from the Fraternity Service Center by sending your request to or contacting us at (800) 233-1856.

Fraternity Laws

The Fraternity Laws
This publication serves as the official governing law book for Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Broken down into articles and further into sections, the laws are not determined by any one person. Instead, these laws are voted upon and accepted by the Fraternity Convention, comprised of collegiate and alumni members, regional volunteer leaders and past and present board members.

Minervas Shield

Minerva's Shield
Equally as important as the Fraternity Laws is our official health-and-safety guide, which details expectations, protocol and crisis procedures that all members and advisers are expected to understand. Sigma Alpha Epsilon maintains a zero-tolerance policy for behaviors and actions that either violate our regulations or deviate from our creed and values. Click HERE to view the booklet.


The Phoenix
Every new member receives a hard-copy of this manual when the chapter officers report his initiation to the Fraternity Service Center. The chapters and materials contained in it cover the organization's history, governance, structure and values among other educational sections. Click HERE to view the book.


The Record
Published continuously since 1888, The Record is Sigma Alpha Epsilon's award-winning magazine. The print version is automatically sent to all collegiate members' addresses that are reported to the Fraternity Service Center when they join. In most cases, that address is the parents', or permanent, address. Once the student graduates, he will continue to receive the print version if he meets the circulation criteria.
