“Behind every great chapter are great volunteers.” The late Grand President Phil Cox, Indiana ’84, would regularly remind us that volunteers are the core of successful and impactful SigEp programs and events for undergraduate brothers and alumni.
The work you do is transformational in helping ensure each undergraduate brother has the opportunity for a life-changing, developmental brotherhood experience. And we want to make sure that you have the training and resources you need to succeed in working with the chapter and mentoring undergraduates.
Carlson Leadership Academy
As a chapter’s recruitment mentor, you have such an important job coaching undergraduates on consistently recruiting the right men, who will contribute to and benefit from the SigEp experience.
This winter at the regional Carlson Leadership Academies, we’re providing focused training and networking for YOU – our SigEp volunteers who focus on recruitment! It’s the first time we’re hosting an in-person specialized training for your volunteer role – because it’s that important to both the health of the chapter and to the undergraduates you mentor on a daily basis. As we both know … recruitment is the lifeblood of the chapter and our leaders will use the skills they build – like sales and interviewing skills – throughout their lives.
We hope you’ll register for Carlson Leadership Academy, happening:

The program will focus on how you can best support year-round chapter recruitment, new SigEp recruitment technology and tools, facilitating high-quality workshops, and recruitment-specific initiatives. You’ll also build a network with other recruitment volunteers and take away knowledge to help you coach the VP of Recruitment and members to reach their chapter growth goals.
The Fraternity covers the cost for one volunteer per chapter to attend with your undergraduates.

Cox Volunteer Institute
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, between 2015 and 2020, SigEp reached over 300 volunteers during 17 daylong Cox Institutes and raised almost $1 million to guarantee education for future generations of SigEp volunteers. We are currently assessing this program to bring it back in-person in the future, so that the Institute can become the gold standard in fraternity volunteer training.
Virtual Volunteer Convos
Periodically, we connect virtually for volunteer training opportunities.
