Purdue Partners with Sigma Chi Leadership Institute
The Sigma Chi Leadership Institute (SCLI) announced in early February that they are entering into a leadership development partnership with Purdue University’s Department of Technology Leadership and Innovation (TLI) within its Polytechnic Institute located in West Lafayette, Indiana.
Following its achievement of accreditation candidacy within Middle States Association Commission of Elementary Schools and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS) in late December 2020, SCLI is excited to expand its offerings as a learning service provider to valued partners.
Transformational Leadership Training
The Sigma Chi Leadership Institute is a 501(c)(3) organization that offers values-based curriculum to help our Sigma Chi brothers and community members become transformational leaders. Sigma Chi believes transformational leadership is the practice by which leaders inspire and empower others to innovate and create change that will positively impact our fraternity and ultimately the world.
“Ramp Up Your Resilience”
For the past two years, Purdue and SCLI stakeholders collaborated on the integral social skills and leadership competencies needed for undergraduate students to succeed and evolve on college campuses. The shared vision between the two organizations led to an initial focus on resilience and the importance of overcoming adversity; these areas of focus have become especially important amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Purdue and SCLI will be launching a six-week online course titled, “Ramp Up Your Resilience”. It will provide an integrative approach to leadership development through a unique online program designed to enhance the self-awareness dimension of Transformational Leadership. This six-week program provides a bridge between Purdue’s Strengths-based campus initiatives and the Resilience program that prepares students for collaborative endeavors and leadership opportunities.
Unique Opportunity to Partner with Sigma Chi
“We are thrilled to have this unique opportunity to partner with Sigma Chi Leadership Institute and bring the Ramp Up Your Resilience course to Purdue’s Department of Technology Leadership and Innovation this spring. I am certain these efforts will benefit the next generation of Purdue leaders in their roles on campus and beyond,” says Beth McCuskey, vice provost for student life at Purdue.
As leaders in the fraternity and sorority community, Sigma Chi International Fraternity continues to believe that the creation of SCLI will positively impact the entire Greek-letter world.
