Pi Kapp College for Emerging Leaders 2017

Deadline: June 30 2017 at 11:59 PM CDT (Midnight)


Pi Kapp College for Emerging Leaders is a transformational, six-day leadership development experience intended to empower participants to create the ideal chapter. Bringing together up to 50 undergraduate students from across the country for each session, this institute for emerging leaders has proven to be one of Pi Kappa Phi's most impactful programs.

Participants spend their time at Pi Kapp College for Emerging Leaders in two spaces: the Forum and their Huddles. The Forum is the large group space where all participants and faculty members come together to exchange thoughts and learn from each other. Two Lead Faculty members primarily guide the conversation during time spent in the Forum.

In addition to the large group session, students also participate in small groups, called Huddles. Huddles are led by two faculty members (one alumnus and one Friend of the Fraternity). In these groups, participants make friends, cultivate brotherhood, reflect on what’s been discussed, and make meaning of each day’s curriculum.

The institute will also include a challenge course, unique subordinate rituals, and an insider look at Pi Kappa Phi's history through visits to both the Kelley A. Bergstrom Leadership Center of Pi Kappa Phi in Charlotte, NC and the College of Charleston.

Pi Kappa Phi commits that graduates will be able to identify their personal strengths as a leader and how to utilize those strengths when working with others, articulate their personal values, further understand Pi Kappa Phi's obligations of membership and actively choose to act more consistently with the values of the Fraternity, and implement a plan of action to help create the chapter on their campus.

There will be three Pi Kapp College sessions offered this summer:

  • Session I: May 21-26, 2017
  • Session II: June 11-16, 2017
  • Session III: July 9-14, 2017

    Pi Kapp College for Emerging Leaders will begin in Charlotte, NC at the Kelley A. Bergstrom Leadership Center. The majority of the program will take place at the Sigma Chapter house at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC, and participants will spend a full day in Charleston, SC for a Heritage Tour, including historic Pi Kappa Phi sites in both the Holy City and on the College of Charleston campus.
