Kappa Sigma Fraternity Beta-Pi Chapter
From the Kappa Sigma Fraternity National Website (http://kappasigma.org/about/mission/) Mission The Fraternity should complement and enhance the educational mission of the host institution. The Fraternity is committed to fostering a close cooperative partnership with all colleges and universities where its chapters exist. The Fraternity should promote academic achievement and assist each member to achieve his academic potential. By helping members adjust to the college environment, we can help them pursue their degree goals. Co-curricular activities can be as valuable as the classroom experience; hence, the Fraternity should promote involvement in all aspects of campus life. The Fraternity should promote the ideal of Brotherhood. The creation of lifelong friendships is a primary benefit of Fraternity membership. The Fraternity fulfills the need of students to belong to an extended family and frequently provides the opportunity to enhance those personal relationships through group living situations. As Brothers, our members have an obligation to have a caring concern for the welfare of our members. Brotherhood is a lifetime commitment; therefore, we should encourage strong alumni-undergraduate relationships for the mutual benefit of the students and the alumni. The Fraternity should actively contribute to the personal growth and development of its members. We teach young men social skills that will benefit them throughout their lifetime. The multitude of leadership opportunities available through the Fraternity prepares members for success in their chosen careers. Chapters should organize well-rounded programs and strive for excellence and quality in all undertakings. The Fraternity should promote ethical behavior and decision-making. The lessons taught from Fraternity ritual should be incorporated into the daily lives of the members. Kappa Sigmas are expected to act as gentlemen at all times, and the Fraternity must demand the highest standards of personal conduct. The Fraternity should instill a sense of responsibility and integrity. The dignity of all persons shall always be respected The Fraternity should encourage service to others. Members, individually and collectively, should work toward the betterment of their campus and community… and in so doing contribute to the betterment of themselves.
The purpose of the Panhellenic Council is to assist collegiate and alumnae chapters of the member groups, to cooperate with colleges and to foster interfraternal relationships. Its mission is to support its womens' fraternities by promoting values, education, leadership, friendship, cooperation, and citizenship.
