Austin Peay State University Sends Record Number of Students to UIFI Including 4 Members of Kappa Alpha Order
Clarksville, TN – This summer, the North American Interfraternity Conference hosted its 26th Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI) in Bloomington, Indiana, and 17 Austin Peay State University students received scholarships to attend the event, which is the largest attendance for this leadership development institute in the University’s history. Four of those attendees were members of the Zeta Tau chapter of Kappa Alpha Order.
Top leaders from fraternity and sorority communities across North America were invited to attend one of the 15 sessions of UIFI this summer.
Aristeo Ruiz and Tyler Bailey received a scholarship from the Kappa Alpha Order Educational Foundation. Bennett Evans received a scholarship from the APSU Office of Fraternity & Sorority Affairs. Ryan Honea received scholarships from the Student Organization Council to attend UIFI.
During the institute, participants had the opportunity to explore, define and enhance their leadership skills, personal integrity, fraternity and sorority commitment and grow to expect values based action from themselves and those they lead. Further, the institute allows for students to engage with the Bloomington community through the “Into the Streets” program, which is a highlight for Austin Peay students.
Overall, the students enhance their focus on living fraternal values and identifying opportunities for growth while also being able to develop a personal action plan for change in their chapters, councils and communities.
