Leadership is the key to both Pi Kappa Alpha's success and the success of our individual members. The Fraternity provides a valuable arena for developing and exercising leadership skills that will benefit the individual member throughout life. Pi Kappa Alpha provides leadership opportunities through executive positions within the chapter, as well as committee positions within in the chapter and within the Interfraternity Council. In addition, Pi Kappa Alpha promotes leadership through campus involvement by involving its members in positions of leadership in other organizations. On an international level, unique opportunities are offered in leadership training through Pike University events such as seven regional Leadership Summits, the Chapter Executives Conference, the Academy and the Convention.
The leadership skills gained as an undergraduate are applied in the business world post graduation. Many successful Pike alumni are scouting the undergraduate ranks for the next executive of their company. Most good jobs are found through networking- not through classified adds. Pi Kappa Alpha's size and reputation serve as a tremendous resource for recent graduates in pursuit of that perfect job.
Pike University is the combined banner for all of the Fraternity's leadership programs and is the foundation of Pi Kappa Alpha's educational curriculum. Pike University helps further the Fraternity's mission and vision and is administered by the Fraternity's professional staff.
Internally, we strive for operational excellence, growth and a volunteer spirit in all of our training and educational efforts. We know that the quality of our work can deliver success to chapters and develop leaders. This is what being a True Pike is all about.
