The Frank J. Ruck Leadership Institute is an intense five-day event for SigEp’s top rising leaders. The Fraternity’s best and brightest gather in Va. over the summer for a program focused on personal leadership skills and the Balanced Man Ideal. Prominent SigEp alumni serve as mentors and guide Ruck scholars through competitive challenges and lessons in leadership.
Participants are stretched both mentally and physically, and pushed to explore their potential. The result is that Ruck scholars learn about their leadership styles, and how to apply them to different situations. The program’s mission is, “Teaching the few to impact the many,” and Ruck scholars all return to their campus ready to utilize their new skills to impact their campus and community.
Ruck scholars are selected for their leadership experience on campus and in the community, as well as a commitment to Sound Mind and Sound Body. Ruck scholars must be strong students and physically active.
The Ruck Leadership Institute was conceived in 1988, with a curriculum based on the world-renowned book, The Leadership Challenge, co-authored by Brother Barry Posner, California- Santa Barbara ’70.
The 2013 Ruck Leadership Institute will be held in Richmond, Va. on June 19-23. Apply if you are a rising junior or senior and have the desire to further your personal leadership talents with some of the top SigEps from across the country.
Applications are due March 15, 2013, and will be available late fall 2012.
