A Scholar, a Leader, an Athlete and a Gentleman
First implemented by Sigma Phi Epsilon in the fall of 1992, the Balanced Man Program is the Fraternity's leadership development program. It is self-paced membership experience for undergraduates that is based on achievement in the chapter and the community.
The Balance Man Program builds brotherhood by developing individual members through mentoring and community service. Brotherhood is also strengthened by developing the group through chapter experiential learning activities and enhanced ritual ceremonies. As members progress through the challenges, their ability to lead and serve will be developed and tested.
Implementing the Balance Man Program provides the chapter with many advantages including:
▪ Group activities which provide increased opportunities for brotherhood and fun
▪ Opportunities to have an impact in the community through service-learning
▪ Improved academic support through mentoring and goal setting
▪ New support materials which provide guidance for the personal development of each member
▪ Faculty and Alumni advisors
▪ Balanced Man Scholarship
The Balanced Man Program is a series of challenges along The Journey to a Balanced Life--The Journey of Brotherhood. Each challenge is marked by a rite of passage, and consists series of goals to be reached, with an emphasis on involvement in the campus, the community, and the chapter. The entire program is self-paced--you set your own goals and form your own plans to reach those goals. The challenges that SigEp brothers go through are Sigma, Phi, Epsilon, Brother Mentor, and Fellow.
