The purpose of the Expansion Department is to diligently research opportunities in order to establish and cultivate colonies to become a chapter that makes real the ideals of Sigma Pi. Our goal is to acquire premier institutions for expansion through values based recruitment of campus leaders, scholars, athletes and gentlemen.

Interest Group Petitions

Sigma Pi Fraternity prides itself on being excellent in everything that we do. We do this by living out our values every day, and by doing so, we set the standard for fraternities on any given campus. To ensure that our colonies are the best groups on their respective campuses, the Fraternity’s colony development program includes requirements for interest groups petitioning to colonize. Depending on the institution, the interest group may be required to petition the Executive Office, the operation arm of the Fraternity, to approve colonization. This petition should primarily describe the interest group’s progress through these requirements.The interest group requirements will drive the group’s growth and become the foundation of future success. There are resources available to enable interest groups to meet these requirements in a timely manner. The Fraternity’s Director of Strategic Growth oversees the interest group process, working with the group and its leaders through the pre-colonization phase. He will continue to guide them as they strive to become a full chapter of Sigma Pi Fraternity.
