Every two years at Conclave, we recognize our highest performing chapters with the Buchanan Outstanding Chapter Award. Named in honor of past Grand President Edwin Buchanan, the Buchanan Cup, as we commonly refer to it, represents superior and sustained achievement in our Fraternity. The Buchanan Cup, or "Buc Cup" recognizes the best-of-the-best Sigma Phi Epsilon chapters. Chapters are measured in relation to the accomplishments of their peers on campuses across the country. Only the chapters that excel in every area of operations and further the Grand Chapter's strategic plan qualify for this high honor.
In order to be eligible, a chapter must have been chartered by the previous Conclave.
Chapters are self-nominated by completing and submitting an application by March of each Conclave year. Apply today for the 2017 Buchanan Cup!
