Leadership School provides two tracks, a leadership track for general members and a management track for chapter officers.
The leadership track takes a big-picture look at fraternity leadership and a deeper dive into what it means to serve the Fraternity and our global community. It is an immersive learning experience in which collegiate brothers will focus on building the skills needed to serve in any leadership role and will build leadership competencies needed to lead within the Fraternity, their community, and in their professional roles.
The management track focuses on increasing each officer’s understanding of their roles and responsibilities, team building, goal setting, strategy development, and implementation. We also focus on the crucial chapter and community issues paramount to success.
Leadership School will build leadership competencies needed to lead within the Fraternity, your community, and professional roles.
