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.

We focus our efforts to demonstrate the value in our organization through the actions of our new chapters. If you are looking for the opportunity to build lifelong friendships, develop a personal and professional network extending around the globe and the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills that extend beyond the classroom, you might have what it takes to become a Sigma Pi.
