This manual served as a guide to introduce volunteers to key mentoring concepts during the early days of the Balanced Man Program (BMP) in the 1980s. Initially called the Balanced Man Project, SigEp’s member development program was conceived as a way to provide brothers opportunities for growth throughout their collegiate journey in lieu of traditional fraternity new member programs that only focused on the first weeks of membership. While the Balanced Man Program has evolved over the years, the core concepts remain and have become the foundation of today’s SigEp experience.
Participating in the BMP gives our young brothers opportunities to develop into leaders and supports their academic growth. Since implementing the BMP as SigEp’s only member development program in 2015, chapters have consistently shown higher manpower and a culture focused on wellness and continuous personal development.
