There are myriad ways to get involved with the Chicago Society if you’re an undergraduate, alumni, or volunteer.
PROGRAMS & PROJECTS.
We’re led by volunteer time, talent, and resources. You’re always welcome to participate in events, programs, or connect with other members. We welcome your talent and leadership.
We organize and host in-person networking and social events as a way for brothers to connect and get involved in our work. Whether you are a seasoned volunteer or just looking to reengage with the fraternity, these events can be a great way to get involved and make a difference.
Book Club, Movie Club
Various Chicago Society members lead discussions of films, books, and other media (podcasts!) that explore a wide range of themes and issues (both in person and virtually). These groups are great opportunity for members to learn about different issues and be exposed to culture they may not normally stumble across. It also provides a fun environment to share thoughts and perspectives with others.
The Chicago Society Fund
The Chicago Society Fund is our commitment to providing mentorship, programming, and events in honor of and for the benefit of our GBTQ+ brothers. This fund aims to foster an inclusive environment by investing in educational and leadership resources focusing on GBTQ+ undergraduate and alumni brothers and allies.
This project helps preserve and document the experiences and stories of individuals within the SigEp GBTQ+ community. The project provides a way for individuals to share their unique perspectives and histories, which builds a more complete and nuanced understanding of the GBTQ+ experience in SigEp and allows us to celebrate and preserve the diversity of our brotherhood.
Every two years, Sigma Phi Epsilon hosts the largest gathering of its members across the nation, the Grand Chapter Conclave. The Chicago Society works to bring together our members for celebration and programming.
The McCleary Memorial Leadership Endowment Fund
The Donald C. McCleary Memorial Leadership Endowment Fund is named after the esteemed past grand president and Order of the Golden Heart recipient. The fund will provide annual support to undergraduate leaders dedicated to championing the progressive change brother McCleary spent his life advancing.
Just like in the days immediately after the Covid-19 lockdown, Brothers join together via zoom to connect, banter, and reflect on memories together.
The McCleary Innovation Room at Kief House
The McCleary Innovation Room honors Brother McCleary's tireless work toward advancing equal rights and reimagining the member development experience for undergraduate members. Chicago Society donors support this space insuring our history of effecting positive change lives on in the fraternity's narrative history.
