Leadership Institute

Better Men. Better Lives.

Leadership Institute is returning in Summer 2023!


Leadership Institute (LI) is an immersive and transformational five-day experience built for undergraduate members and led by trained alumni volunteers. Up to 50 undergraduate participants will be chosen to attend LI, where they will engage in individual and team exercises that allow participants to push their leadership skills to the next level. The goal of this program is to prepare every LI graduate for their next student leadership opportunity and to set a foundation for leadership opportunities beyond college.


More than 1,300 Delta Sigs have participated in LI since it was first launched more than three decades ago. Some of our Fraternity’s strongest leaders have credited the Leadership Institute to their development and we are eager to welcome the next generation of Leadership Institute candidates!


The Leadership Institute will take place July 27-31, 2024 in Brookston, IN.




The 2024 Leadership Institute application is now open!

Applications are due by Sunday, March 17 at 11:59pm PST. 

Apply for Leadership Institute

“Leadership Institute was an eye-opening experience. It allowed me to grow as a person, by sharing experiences with different brothers from across the nation. Learning how different chapters operate can be very resourceful when trying to improve how your own chapter can operate. LI was different than any other program I’ve been a part of as an undergrad. For those who want to improve themselves and their chapter, I highly recommend applying.”
