UIFI is a five-day journey, with each day building upon the one previous. UIFI offers participants the opportunity to explore, define and enhance their leadership skills, personal awareness, commitment to their fraternity or sorority and grow to expect values-based action from themselves and those they lead.
The institute is interactive, fun, challenging and intentional. During a session, you'll experience hands-on interaction, experiential activities, discussion time and personal reflection time. There is considerable focus on the positive aspects of fraternities and sororities in addition to important discussions about issues that threaten our future. It really doesn't matter what session you attend; the curriculum is the same at all of them.
Taking the ride means being willing to talk about how fraternity and sorority leaders live their ritual. It means having the courage, character and commitment to do what is right and to devise a plan to change the current direction of some fraternities and sororities. It means walking the talk. It means having a vision of positive change.
Each UIFI participant is challenged to develop a personal plan-of-action and to make a commitment to leading their organizations through the change process. It is a unique challenge, one that each participant must be willing to undertake.
