      Man of Character

      To Develop Character: Honor is the basis of fraternal relationships. We resolve to instill in each member a devotion to those values which will guide him to ends that are noble and right, so that in all that he represents and in all that he does, he shall be known as a man of honor who inspires others by his example and thus wins admiration and respect for himself and for Phi Sigma Kappa.

      Phi Sigma Kappa International Headquarters and the Grand Chapter seek to instill this Cardinal Principle within our members. Every brother should strive to develop his character throughout his lifetime so that…

      “…be known as a man of honor who inspires others by his example and thus wins admiration and respect for himself and for Phi Sigma Kappa.”

      This Cardinal Principle is the very core of our Fraternity and is what defines it to the world.

      Today, on our Founders’ Day, we are launching a new program to recognize those brothers that seek to define this Principle by the actions they take in their lives. The Grand Council’s new “Man of Character” program will recognize up to four undergraduate brothers a year that they see as defining “To Develop Character” and what it means to our Fraternity.

      This Founders’ Day they would like to recognize Brother Alexander Biniaz-Harris (Southern Cal ’15) with this honor.  Alex has displayed leadership through his time at the University of Southern California in multiple ways. He was a founding father during the Omega Deuteron recolonization, has held positions within the chapter and is heavily involved in organizations outside of the chapter, in particular, the USC Shoah Foundation, which he has been involved with since his freshman year. Below you can read more about Alex and his work with the Shoah Foundation and his once in a lifetime trip to Kraków, Poland to perform his co-composed piano piece, Auschwitz Suite, for the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp this past January.

      More information and criteria on this new initiative will be released this week. Nominees must be undergraduate brothers in good standing with the Fraternity and can be nominated by anyone.
