UNDERGRADUATE INTERFRATERNITY INSTITUTE
Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute
The Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI), hosted by the Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values (AFLV), is a four-day institute that brings together fraternity men and sorority women from across North America to create opportunities 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. At UIFI, you will be given the skills to improve your own leadership abilities and positively affect your chapter, council, and community.
Participating in UIFI means that you are 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 devise a plan to change the current direction of some fraternities and sororities. It means having a vision of positive change.
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.
Each UIFI participant will develop their own unique personal plan of action and be challenged to make a commitment to leading positive change within their organization. Creating positive change is a challenge, one that each participant must be willing to undertake.
Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute Essential Information
In an effort to better meet member needs and to be flexible and adaptable in a changing environment, Beta Theta Pi and AFLV will work together to provide the best possible leadership development programming throughout the summer. Beta Theta Pi is proud to continue to partner with AFLV on this hallmark program in 2021.
UIFI is for any collegiate fraternity or sorority member with the desire to be a strong leader and who believes in the fraternal experience. You do not have to hold a formal leadership role or a specific office to attend.
Location details for all sessions will be announced in spring 2021 as the viability of in-person UIFI sessions continues to be evaluated.
Summer 2021 (May, June, July)
Beta offers 25 scholarships to attend UIFI. Scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
