About the Sigma Chi Leadership Institute

SIGMA CHI LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE is a 501(c)(3) organization that offers values-based curriculum to help our Sigma Chi members and community members become transformational leaders. Sigma Chi believes transformational leadership is the practice by which leaders inspire and empower others to innovate and create change that will positively impact the fraternity and ultimately the world.

 

As leaders in the fraternity and sorority community, Sigma Chi International Fraternity continues to believe that the creation of the Sigma Chi Leadership Institute will positively impact the entire Greek-letter landscape. 

 

As Sigma Chis, we expect more from our members. As partners, you should expect more from us. The Sigma Chi Leadership Institute allows you to do just that.

Robert Rabe, M.ED, M.Div., was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio and decided to pursue his undergraduate studies just across the border at Northern Kentucky University in Mental Health and Human Services. His undergraduate studies involved four practicums that addressed systemic societal and mental health issues, ranging from social health education to inner-city gang violence. Upon completion of his B.S. in Mental Health and Human Services, Robert began his graduate studies at St. John’s University in theology and social justice where he earned a Master of Divinity. Due to a deep love for the city of Chicago, especially the lakefront, he accepted a job at Career Colleges of Chicago where he served as an academic advisor and professor of communications and ethics.

During his time as a teacher and administrator, Robert completed a Master of Education in Educational Administration (Pk-12) from Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia and began his doctoral studies at Cardinal Stritch University in Leadership in Higher Education. After 11 years of high school administration and teaching, Robert accepted a position to serve on the Leadership Team for Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Chicago where he was charged with developing a standardized religion curriculum with common summative assessments for approximately 80,000 students. Robert was very excited to be recruited by Sigma Chi to serve as Senior Director of Curriculum and Instruction. He was initiated into the Sigma Chi brotherhood at the age of 43 and has a deep passion for the mission and educational future of Sigma Chi. Robert has authored several articles and books, including a high school religion textbook, The Bible: The Living Word of God, that is used in Catholic high schools throughout the US.

Jared spent his childhood in rural Pennsylvania. Upon the completion of high school, Jared packed his bags, said goodbye to his beagle, and set a course for the “big city.” Attending Rochester Institute of Technology until 2011, he studied computer and software engineering and international studies. During his senior year, after having the opportunity to be part of the founding process of the Fraternity’s R.I.T. chapter, Jared discovered his passion for helping others. Deciding to follow his heart, he transferred to a liberal arts college and earned his bachelor’s degree in psychology. In 2015, he completed a master’s degree in social work, with a specialization in leadership and development in the social services. Jared went on to practice mental health therapy for two years, fulfilling his desire to help others live, heal, and thrive despite having mental health disorders. Recognizing that being a Sigma Chi is a lifelong commitment, Jared jumped on the opportunity to give back to the organization that had been instrumental in his personal development during his undergraduate years. Hoping to use his experience in the social services, he wants to ensure that Sigma Chi continues to be at the forefront of developing leaders, while at the same time spearheading programming to ensure the wellness of all Sigma Chis, the chapter where they are members, and the campuses and communities in which they reside. Jared believes the current academic climate is in need of such a Fraternity and that not only can Greek letter organizations remain relevant, but can reach ever greater heights to affect positive change throughout the world.
