This year's Burns Institute takes place on January 17-19, 2020 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The Burns Institute is exclusively for new members of Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity. Only a select few chapters can offer this experience to their new member classes each January. The program is named after Ralph F. Burns, Ohio Wesleyan '32, Omega '93. Brother Burns was a legendary member of the Old Gal who gave 61 years of his life serving the Fraternity. Ralph's legacy lives on as long as one man reaches to another and calls him 'brother.' It is said every organization needs a conscience. Ralph was our heart and our soul. Alpha Sigma Phi is Ralph Burns and Ralph Burns in Alpha Sigma Phi.
