As a fraternity, we will again become the top in scholarship, establish financial stability, and become more involved in campus activities. By doing so, we will see our membership grow.”
Mission Statement “To Be Builders Of Men Through Manners & Scholastics”
Overview of Strategic Plan The basis of this strategic plan is to provide written and organized objectives and goals in important areas of programming for the fraternity. It is also to provide needed direction in the annual change of offices. The information will be used throughout the year and reviewed on a regular basis by the entire house.
