Beta Theta Pi is a place for leaders. A great college experience goes beyond lessons–it teaches real life. That is why the Beta Theta Pi General Fraternity raises more than more than $850,000 annually to support the development of leadership and life skills in its members. With leadership opportunities for its undergraduates to meet and learn from fellow Betas throughout North America, Betas gain real-world experience that pays off after graduation.
The Miller Nichols Chapter Presidents Leadership Academy: This academy brings all chapter and colony presidents to Beta’s home, Oxford, Ohio, for three days of intense discussion and leadership training.
The Keystone Regional Leadership Conference: A high quality, regional education experience focusing on chapter officer development, principled leadership and volunteer training. Although Beta has other values-based leadership opportunities, this is the first that teaches operational concepts to chapter officers and advisors.
The John and Nellie Wooden Institute for Men of Principle: An intense five-day educational experience, introduced in 1999, designed to lead groups of 80 undergraduate Betas — identified as prospective leaders — through a program of fraternal values, leading with integrity, enhancing chapter motivation, team-building, effective confrontation and service learning.
The Peter F. Greiner Leadership College: This annual experience provides leadership, personal development training, and education for up-and-coming leaders of Beta chapters and colonies during the Fraternity’s General Convention. Recently the Leadership College has been expanded to consist of three different experiences or “tracks” to best accomodate the interests and learning needs of undergraduate participants.
- The recruitment track will offer cutting-edge recruitment training for all undergraduates interested in taking their member recruitment processes to new heights.
- The leadership track will provide emerging and advanced leaders the opportunity to further develop skills necessary to be effective in their formal and situational leadership roles.
- The ritual track will allow for deeper dialogue and reflection regarding the Fraternity’s core principles and how to bring them to the forefront of one’s daily life
Unergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI): This North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) program is a principle-centered institute, designed to create momentum toward positive change for campus and Greek communities.
Futures Quest: This program is for newly initiated Greek members, which focuses on leadership and personal development for the fraternal experience and beyond.
