The Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity provides a valuable arena for developing and honing leadership skills that will benefit the individual member throughout his life. In addition, Pi Kappa Alpha promotes leadership through campus involvement by encouraging its members to take positions of leadership in other organizations.
Our members are provided the opportunity to not only gain elite leadership experience in college, but are also given the opportunity to network with highly successful alumni. This combination of leadership and mentorship provides our members with the skills they need to rise above the competition.
Our dedication to leadership can be seen throughout our pledging process. The process places a very strong emphasis on the growth of one’s leadership skills by improving one’s ability to work in a team, their ability to manage time, their communication and oratory skills, and by encouraging our pledges to step up and take leadership roles both within their pledge class and within the University of Minnesota community.
This focus has produced overwhelming success for our brothers who have completed the pledge process; within our brotherhood over 90% of our members are active in other organizations.
Pike University is North America’s premier fraternal leadership training program. Its objective is to conduct leadership, management, and personal development programs in a manner that prepares its members for success in life. There are 12 or more leadership and educational conferences hosted by Pike University each year.
