Designed for our community leadership, chapter presidents, and council executive board officers, ADVANCE allows our leaders to work towards optimal effectiveness within their chapters and councils while building a sense of community.

Leaders will participate in a weekend leadership program that will guide the conversation and goals for the year. Monthly, leaders will gather during Tri-Council meetings to ADVANCE the community, participate in difficult conversation, and promote collaboration among all organizations.

Friendships and Mental Health Program

This program focuses on teaching students to recognize signs of distress and connect fellow students with support services.

This training fulfills the Brotherhood/Sisterhood requirement for wellness. Because it is an online program your members can complete the training remotely and at any time.

Following completion of the program, contact the Student Counseling Service Office to schedule an in-person debrief with your chapter.

National Leadership Opportunities

Undergraduate InterFraternity Institute (UIFI)

UIFIUIFI is a 5-day journey, with each day building upon the one previous. UIFI offers participants the opportunity 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.

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.

UIFI is the preeminent leadership development experience for fraternity and sorority members, and is an experience unlike any other; it is not a conference or a workshop—it is a uniquely holistic journey that you share with other interfraternal brothers and sisters. A UIFI graduate not only learns important leadership lessons, but also reaches deep inside themselves to find their true fraternal calling.

Your journey will include discussions on purpose, courage, leadership, integrity, and vision. Your work will be done both in full-group sessions and in small discussion groups called “chapters.” You will interact with peers from all over North America and with mentors that work professionally in fraternity and sorority life.
