The Transformational Leader program is Sigma Chi International Fraternity’s over-arching leadership development program for all undergraduate and alumni members. The transformational leader first must learn to manage self before being able to lead others and cultivate action within your community or campus. This program aims to equip Sigma Chis with the needed skills and competencies to transform their careers and chapters. The Transformational Leader program, free to all brothers, is taught online and through life-changing leadership experiences led by certified Sigma Chi Facilitator Academy instructors. Each of the nine certificates within the program contain 12 leadership competencies that make up the Transformational Leadership philosophy:
“The practice by which leaders inspire and empower others to innovate and create change that will positively impact the Fraternity and ultimately the world.”
Sigma Chi, through the Sigma Chi Leadership Institute, is the only Greek-letter organization to offer accredited leadership programming from an institution recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. This allows brothers to earn not only leadership certificates but also potentially transferable college credit.
