Nominations are still being accepted for the 2014 Robert M. Zillgitt Leadership Institute!
The Zillgitt Leadership Institute is a program of specialized leadership training and experiential learning dedicated to creating stronger members and a greater Fraternity. Funding for the Institute has been made available through the Phi Sigma Kappa Foundation from a bequest of the estate of the late Robert M. Zillgitt, a member of the Court of Honor and former Foundation Trustee. Brother Zillgitt was a champion of developing chapter leaders.
Every chapter and colony is encouraged to nominate brothers; however, only one member from every chapter/colony is selected. Self-nominations are also welcome.
Nominate a brother who you feel exemplifies leadership characteristics today.
To nominate a Phi Sig, send the candidate's name, email address, and chapter designation to Kathy. Chapters, colonies, and volunteer officers are strongly encouraged to nominate undergraduate brothers for this honor.
Prerequisites: To be accepted into the Zillgitt Leadership Institute, the following criteria must be met:
February 20, 2014 marks the 104th Anniversary of the founding of Phi Sigma Epsilon at Kansas State Normal College, today called Emporia University. We have recently re-colonized the founding chapter at Emporia University in order to celebrate and revive another part of the proud history of our organization.
Today’s organization was forever changed by the Merger in 1985, which enhanced our Brotherhood and strengthened the bond to members in both organizations. Today is a day we acknowledge and honor the history and contributions of Phi Sigma Epsilon to the collective Brotherhood of Phi Sigma Kappa.
Starting a Colony
If there is no existing chapter or colony at your school, you have the exciting opportunity to become a Founding Father for Phi Sigma Kappa! This is truly and honor, and a title only a few will ever hold. Read below, and see what is involved with starting a colony.
Typically, expansions fall into three categories: interest group, local fraternity affiliation and a national expansion. Their definitions are as follows:
Interest Group: An interest group is comprised of a number of men who are interested in bringing Phi Sigma Kappa to campus. An interest group can be as small as 10-15 men, or as large as 40-50.
Local Fraternity Affiliation: This type of expansion comes about when a local campus fraternity contacts Phi Sigma Kappa seeking to merge with our organization.
National Expansion: This type of expansion involves staff members building a colony from the ground up, from recruiting founding fathers and supporting alumni to appointing and training new colony officers. This type comprises the majority of Phi Sigma Kappa's expansions and can be the result of interest from local alumni and/or the institution.
When choosing where to expand, Phi Sigma Kappa considers a number of factors, including, but certainly not limited to:
