Sigma Phi Epsilon is successful largely because of the tireless work of thousands of volunteers who donate their time and talents to support the Fraternity experience at local, regional and national levels.
Many of SigEp’s volunteers are alumni, who stay involved to give back. Others are members of the University’s faculty and staff as well as parents and community leaders, who give back because they believe in SigEp’s ideals and want to make an impact on the undergraduate experience for college men.
Whether you have an afternoon to share each week or once a year, you can support the Fraternity’s mission of Building Balanced Men.

Alumni and Volunteer Corporations
An Alumni and Volunteer Corporation (AVC) is an independent, non-profit corporation established to serve and benefit the alumni, volunteers and undergraduates of a specific chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon.
Because undergraduate chapter membership turns over every four years, the AVC provides continuity by maintaining a long-term perspective. AVCs that focus on the following will ensure the long-term growth and success of the chapter: Mentoring undergraduates, cultivating alumni, managing assets, and maintaining corporate health. | More
One key responsibility of the AVC is mentoring undergraduates. By mentoring chapter leaders, the SigEp mentor committee helps shape the direction of the chapter in recruitment, member development, leadership development and fiscal health, while ensuring long-term planning and stability. | More
SigEp maintains the following insurance policies for the protection of the organization and its undergraduates and volunteers. Individuals are covered under the policy as long as they are acting within the scope of their duties for Sigma Phi Epsilon. | More

Interested in Volunteering?
Consider volunteering on an Alumni and Volunteer Corporation, as a mentor to undergraduates or as a facilitator at one of SigEps many leadership events.
The majority of SigEp’s volunteers work with a local chapter as a member of an Alumni and Volunteer Corporation in a variety of capacities, including roles as mentors to help undergraduate leaders improve chapter operations. To learn more about volunteering with a local chapter or to become a volunteer today, contact the District Governor responsible for your area of the country.
Another way to volunteer for SigEp at the regional level is to serve as a curriculum facilitator at one of SigEp’s many national programs.
