Code of Conduct

As an attendee of our Academy, you will be asked to agree to the following terms, which help designate us as true gentlemen and leaders: 

I do hereby agree to adhere to the following Code of Conduct while I am an attendee of the Emerging Leaders Academy. My conduct will at all times be a reflection of “The True Gentleman.” I will not violate the laws of the land, the regulations of my university/college or the Fraternity Laws and health-and-safety policies of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. 

If I fail in any way to follow this Code of Conduct, I fully understand that the Eminent Supreme Recorder or his designee has the right to remove me from the Academy immediately and send me home at my own expense, or with my chapter being billed by the Fraternity Service Center. I also understand that if this occurs, my membership in Sigma Alpha Epsilon may be terminated. 

As a gentleman, I understand that some t-shirt slogans or pictures can be vulgar or tasteless. I will refrain from wearing such a shirt while a part of the Emerging Leaders Academy. If I have a question as to my shirt’s acceptability, I will ask a staff or faculty member for guidance. I realize that this type of dress reflects on the image of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. 

I further agree that I shall continue to abide by the Scope of Association, which I signed upon claiming my sae.net account.

I understand that if my poor attendance at general sessions, seminars, or meetings or my conduct warrants my failing the Emerging Leaders Academy and not being awarded a diploma, I will be responsible for reimbursing the total tuition cost paid by the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity. I understand and acknowledge that attendance at the entire Academy — from start to finish — is required for successful graduation. Departing early from the Academy, for any reason, may result in my failure to graduate from the Academy. Additionally, I understand that if my actions cause injury to someone or something, I will indemnify and hold Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity and Foundation harmless from any claims arising from my actions.
