Our Strategic Plan

The strategic initiatives are the product of months of work by active members, alumni and staff. We engaged students, volunteers and donors throughout the Realm through surveys, focus groups, meetings and one-on-one communication to gain the best possible understanding of issues and interests. We have made our best effort to ensure those priorities are reflected in the plan’s goals, objectives and strategies.

These initiatives are intended to serve as a primary set of priorities for the next three years with goals achieved by the end of 2018. The Supreme Council and staff will use this plan as a guide in developing the programs, tactics and services that will drive the organization forward and support the Mission of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. This plan is not intended to be an all-encompassing approach to the Fraternity but rather a set of focused initiatives to promote member involvement and organizational growth.

There are four overarching goals:

  1. Engage and retain alumni throughout life
  2. Increase our relevance and reputation by better connecting members with the Mission
  3. Live “The True Gentleman” to provide an experience that will be safe for members and guests
  4. Prioritize Fraternity resources to implement the strategic initiatives
