Are you a student thinking about attending UIFI?

This is the time – and you are the leader. Give us 5 days to prove it!

WHY: Now more than ever, we need passionate students like you who want to advance their own leadership potential while collaborating with peers to ensure a positive fraternity/sorority experience – not only for yourself and fellow members, but also for the campuses we call home. We want our communities and organizations to thrive, and to be known for the values upon which we were founded. We also want to provide an experience for you that inspires confidence and success, whether it be in the classroom, at an organization meeting, leading a campus-wide effort, or taking a new job.

WHO: UIFI is for any collegiate fraternity or sorority member with the desire to be a strong leader and who believes in the fraternal experience. You do not have to hold a formal leadership role or specific office to attend.

WHAT: At UIFI, you’ll learn with and from peers who belong to various organizations and councils. Through exploration of critical issues in thought-provoking activities, the program is intended to help you identify the leader you want to be and where you can make the most impact in your chapter, council or community. Together you’ll define the challenges that our communities face today, and leave excited to address those challenges back on campus – all while developing skills that are useful in and out of fraternity and sorority life.

WHEN: Multiple UIFI sessions are scheduled throughout May, June and July 2018. Find the full schedule below – sessions fill quickly and will be marked as “session full” as they reach capacity. Act quickly to get a spot in the session you want!

WHERE: All national sessions are held at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN. We also schedule campus or organization sessions organized in partnership between NIC staff and the campus/org.

OTHER Types of UIFI Programs

In addition to the above National Sessions of UIFI held at Indiana University, the NIC provides opportunities for:

  • Campus Sessions: A campus can host a UIFI session specifically for members of its fraternity/sorority communities. These programs are held on that campus or local to the community, and organized by campus professionals/leaders in partnership with NIC staff. Learn more about campus sessions here. Contact NIC Director of Education and Leadership Development Melissa Kish to talk about bringing UIFI to your campus.
  • Organization Sessions: An inter/national fraternal organization can host a UIFI session, bringing together its collegiate members from chapters and communities across North America. Organization sessions are held at a central location determined by the organization and are organized by the inter/national organization staff or volunteers in partnership with NIC staff. Learn more about organization sessions here. Contact NIC Director of Education and Leadership Development Melissa Kish to talk about hosting a UIFI session for your organization.
