Since the last SigEp strategic plan launched in 2009:
Many of our chapters are effectively recruiting year-round and no longer dependent on a rush pool limited to one week a year. In 2019, 40% of our membership came through year-round recruitment efforts and 1 in 5 men joined through the Balanced Man Scholarship process.
Because undergraduates passed legislation to implement the Balanced Man Program across all chapters in 2015, more brothers are getting the support and development they need to thrive as students and professionals after they graduate. SigEp is now seen as the benchmark for fraternities in the way we develop our young leaders.
The SigEp Learning Community program has relaunched. Many houses have been renovated into clean, professionally managed living-learning environments and are places our undergraduates want to live in and that alumni are proud to return to when visiting campus.
Stories of our chapter success have reached our alumni, and because of that, the SigEp Educational Foundation has raised more money for leadership programs in the last five years than at any other point in our history. That means less financial burden placed on undergraduates as they receive more and better programming.
Progress has even led to chapter leaders confidently presenting to university presidents and vice presidents about SigEp’s approach to the fraternity experience, changing the conversation on college campuses about how to do fraternity the right way.
SigEp has life-building, future-shaping, world-changing work to do. Are you in? Learn more about the plan, becoming a volunteer or supporting these efforts.
