The Impact of Your Donation …

"The skills I attained through instructive programs like the Chapter Presidents’ Leadership Academy escalated my potential for success as a leader of my fraternal organization as well as in my future career. I continue to value the concepts and development which I consciously utilize in my decision-making and management."

Tanis Klinger, ’14 LAS
Former Sigma Kappa Sorority Chapter President

"The Chapter Presidents’ Leadership Academy helped me to understand my own leadership style and provided an opportunity for me to learn about how to effectively work with other leadership styles. I was also able to establish relationships with other chapter leaders on campus. Throughout my terms as chapter president and as a council officer, I frequently utilized this network and the acquired knowledge to address issues within my chapter and the Interfraternity Council."
