The Balanced Man Program

In 1991, SigEp sent a shockwave through the fraternity world when SigEp's undergraduates and fraternity officials called for a member development program that would transform the pledging process in order to emphasize achievement in the chapter, campus, and community. The new process was called the Balanced Man Program.


Focused on continual, holistic member development that promotes balanced living and combats destructive behavior, the Balanced Man Program is more than just a program - it's the center of the SigEp experience.

The program is founded upon five philosophical tenets:

Equal Rights and Responsibilities - Full membership upon joining.
Continuous Development - Growing throughout your time in college.
Accountability - Committing to SigEp's high standards.
Living the Ritual - Incorporating SigEp's values into everyday life.
Mentoring - Maximizing growth through guidance and support.

... and takes the form of four self-paced challenges that span throughout the college career.

Sigma - Adjusting and acclimating to the chapter, campus, and community.
Phi - Growing and developing as a balanced man.
Epsilon - Leading and serving as a balanced man.
Brother Mentor - Preparing yourself and your chapter for the future.

... focusing on six areas of development.

SigEp - Knowledge and understanding of the Fraternity.
Sound Mind - Intellectual and academic growth and performance.
Sound Body - Physical health and wellness.
Personal - Emotional and cultural growth.
Leadership - Growth and experience as a leader.
Professional - Preparation for career success.
