What’s the best advice for Kappa Sigma Chapters that you can give? 

What I can say for Brothers all across the world is to listen and learn as much as you can from all of those who have come before you. This applies to life in general and specifically for the betterment of our Brotherhood. Consume as much knowledge as you can and never stop doing that, while, at the same time, never be afraid to make changes, however small or large, to help your Chapter grow in whichever way you intend it to. Change may not always bring growth, but there is no growth without change.

As our Fraternity has thrived for over 150 years since our North American founding in 1869, the next generation of leaders must continue to make changes and grow to ensure our success for the next 150 as well. 

What is the Undergraduate Advisory Committee (UAC)?

The UAC serves a critical role within the Order by ensuring undergraduate viewpoints are presented to the Supreme Executive Committee (SEC). Through the UAC, undergraduate Brother’s voices are heard directly. Each member of the UAC serves a one year term, and is elected by active Brothers in one of five geographical areas at either the biannual Leadership Conference or Grand Conclave.
