Through dynamic teambuilding activities, we build relationships and trust. You will explore what it means to be a revolutionary leader.


You will define your personal leadership style and examine the role courage plays in revolutionary leadership. You will discuss how values, ethics and integrity connect with leadership.


The third day is a day about values, community and Ritual. A longstanding UIFI tradition, "Into the Streets" kick-starts a morning devoted to service. You will explore your identity in the world and how it intersects with your values. Finally, the harsh realities of the current state of fraternity/sorority life are held up against the ideal visions our founders passed on to us.


Day four is about action and results. Focusing on creating lasting change, you will create a "Blueprint" for action that will be your guide as you enact change back on your campus. The day concludes with a social event to celebrate the relationships and commitments made.


The final day is about all of the days that follow UIFI. You will graduate from the UIFI experience and look forward to the challenges that lie ahead.

campus or individual SCHOLARSHIPS

Campuses (via chapter, council or office of fraternity and sorority life) or individuals can provide funding for a student to attend UIFI. Contact your fraternity/sorority advisor to find out if your campus has scholarships available.

NIC Scholarships

Students from Culturally-Based and Emerging NIC Fraternities

Scholarships are available specifically for students who are members of NIC Fraternity Growth Accelerator (FGA) organizations. The FGA program enables the NIC to give focused growth and development opportunities and support to these emerging or culturally-based fraternities, which includes ensuring members have access to programs like UIFI. Students who belong to any of the fraternities listed as an FGA member, as well as members of other culturally-based NIC organizations, are eligible for these funding opportunities. To apply, send an email to Melissa Kish, Director of Education and Leadership Development, including your name, school, affiliation and brief description of financial need. NIC scholarships cover 90 percent of registration costs, which includes meals and lodging. Selected students are responsible for a $50 enrollment fee and travel costs.

Because these scholarships are provided out of NIC operating funds, they are first designated to students whose organization is an NIC member. Click here to see a list of NIC member fraternities.

Students with Financial Need

For students without the financial means to attend UIFI, the NIC offers needs-based scholarships. Because this funding is provided out of NIC operating funds, they are first designated to students who are members of NIC organizations. These scholarships cover 90 percent of the UIFI registration cost, which includes lodging and meals. Selected students will be responsible for a $50 enrollment fee and their travel costs to Bloomington, IN.

UIFI Student Coordinators

Formerly known as UIFI Interns, serving as a Student Coordinator at UIFI can be an awesome experience for a UIFI Graduate. This is an opportunity to give back and contribute to the learning of your interfraternal brothers and sisters from across North-America. UIFI Student Coordinators play a critical role in the program, from managing much of the logistical support for a session to delivering testimonials, which are consistently viewed as a highlight of the UIFI experience.

Who is eligible to be a UIFI Student Coordinator?

UIFI Student Coordinators must be graduates of the Institute and be an undergraduate student involved in fraternity/sorority life. Students graduating from their institution in the spring/summer of 2018 are eligible and encouraged to apply. Campus/fraternal industry professionals and non-students are not eligible to apply.

What is the role of the UIFI Student Coordinator?

The primary role of the Student Coordinator is to provide logistical support to ensure a positive UIFI experience for facilitators and students participating in the program. Student Coordinators may also assist with experiential activities and other curriculum components as part of the session leadership team along with the Lead Facilitators and NIC staff.

What else do I need to know?

  • Location: All National Sessions of UIFI will be held at Indiana University in Bloomington.
  • Program Length: The UIFI program is five days. Lead Facilitators and Student Coordinators arrive two days early for training and preparation.
  • Cost: Student Coordinators are expected to cover their own travel expenses to and from the UIFI host sites. Many campuses and national organizations are able to provide financial support to Student Coordinators for such costs if asked. NIC covers all lodging and meal expenses and provides materials for the program.
  • Travel: Student Coordinators arrange their own travel and once selected, will complete a travel form prior to their assigned session.
