Chapters and Provisional Chapters
For those in an active chapter/provisional chapter of the Fraternity, the Better Man experience begins with Alpha Phase and Responsible Sig Education, commonly referred to within the Fraternity as new member education. The Membership Education Director is responsible for executing this program. After a new member completes the Alpha Phase and Responsible Sig Education, the new member, now an initiated Brother of the Fraternity, transitions into the Sigma Phase.
Sigma Phase is intended for initiated members in their sophomore and junior years of college. The Vice President is responsible for executing this program. There are six areas of focus that make up Sigma Phase Education. Brothers are asked to participate in eight large group activities/discussions (two per term) and to complete 16 individual activities (four per term) to fulfill the Sigma Phase Education requirements. Members who complete the requirements of this phase then participate in Phi Phase Education.
Phi Phase is intended for those members beginning their senior year in college. The Alumni Director is responsible for executing this program. The program focuses on four key areas. Brothers are asked to participate in six large group activities/discussions (one for each area) and to complete four individual activities to fulfill the Phi Phase Education requirements.
To ensure that those men participating in the different phases have the best experience possible and to ensure that the undergraduate officers who support, mentor, and guide them understand their respective role, the Fraternity has developed undergraduate officer resources, which are included on the Fraternity website. Below are the three main resources that are used throughout the Better Man Program:
