81ST JOHN O. MOSELEY LEADERSHIP SCHOOL
From its beginnings, the Foundation has supported the annual costs of Leadership School. John O. Moseley funded the first Leadership School with the help of his brothers from Oklahoma Kappa. After the overwhelming success of the first school, the Foundation began assisting the Fraternity through funds from alumni brothers. Each year the SAE Foundation continues to issue an annual grant to the Fraternity to help offeset cost of Leadership School, making it affordable for over 700 undergraduates annually.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon has often been considered a pioneer in the Greek world, but in the case of the John O. Moseley Leadership School, it is the pioneer. Today, many fraternities and sororities have adopted Moseley's idea and begun their own leadership programs for member development.
Designed to develop leadership skills in undergraduates for use in their chapters and the world beyond, Leadership School has graduated over 25,000 members since it began in the 1935. The Leadership School curriculum is designed to instill both personal and chapter leadership development through three key dimensions: (1) the practical art of administering the affairs of an effective chapter, (2) teaching the principles of leadership, and (3) the Fraternity itself.
