A Message from the CEO
Since 1897, Sigma Pi has cultivated a positive fraternity experience that has impacted over 100,000 members. To assure we continue to provide a value-added fraternal experience, we have been assessing the environment of today’s undergraduate learning needs, to better understand the delivery systems that are most impactful. Thanks to this research, we are currently developing online learning management systems in order to provide readily accessible education. In addition, our boards and key volunteers are assessing how to increase support for both regional and national leadership development workshops. As of today, we are reimagining our Province Workshop model, to bolster programming, that will provide enhanced opportunities for volunteers and undergraduates, to participate in collaborative learning experiences.
To help us accomplish these and upcoming strategic goals, the fraternity and foundation entered into a staff-sharing agreement in January of 2018. While we still have work to do internally, this is already allowing us to more effectively align the foundation with the fraternity, to improve upon shared initiatives and streamline operational cost of the foundation. This strengthened alignment will be a key resource as we seek opportunities for our donors to support both immediate and long-term initiatives of the fraternity leadership experience.
Sigma Pi thanks our alumni and friends, who continue to provide valuable philanthropic support that enhances our undergraduate members leadership development. Your charitable gifts provide the resources necessary to support scholarships, chapter educational funds and leadership development programming. As we continue to move into another century of Sigma Pi traditions and values, I look forward to meeting you on my travels and at upcoming alumni and donor receptions.
There are a variety of ways support our initiatives ranging from the annual fund to a current scholarship/program or establishing a new opportunity fund. To support us in these educational aspirations, or to discuss additional educational development opportunities, please contact us at [email protected]. We look forward to your participation as we continue to provide a world-class fraternal experience and prepare our undergraduate members to enter the global marketplace.
