WHAT YOU’LL EXPERIENCE

THE TRUE BROTHER INITIATIVE

The Outer Circle

The Outer Circle

The Outer Circle is the first stage of the TRUE Brother Initiative. During this stage, collegiate men are recruited into Lambda Chi Alpha, taught the values of our Fraternity, and participate in pre-initiation activities. This encompasses both the recruiting process and new member education leading up to initiation.

The Inner Circle

The Inner Circle

Once initiated, members will experience, reflect, make meaning, and participate in various events that help strengthen their moral development. These activities include holding officer positions in their chapter or on campus, participating in philanthropies that benefit their community, taking leadership classes, or engaging in discussions with their chapter about issues that surround collegiate men.

The Mastery Circle

The final chapter of the TRUE Brother Initiative consists of the various roles that alumni can take in order to stay connected with Lambda Chi Alpha. Alumni can serve undergraduate chapters in an advisory role, through an alumni association, or by being a board member. These positions are crucial to maintaining the TRUE Brother Initiative.

Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.

About Us

As a college student at Boston University, Warren A. Cole (Boston 1912) founded Lambda Chi Alpha on November 2, 1909, with the expressed objective purpose of bringing about the association of college students of good moral character in the various collegiate institutions within the United States and Canada; to foster a high moral and spiritual standard of life based on Christian ideals; to promote honorable friendship; to cultivate intellectual excellence; to secure for members the greatest advantages in college life; to establish brotherly love, mutual aid, close personal connection between alumni, undergraduates and colleges; and, to bind them together for mutual pleasure and interest in college, as well as after life by testing each with courage, self-control, obedience, democracy, and courtesy toward all with whom they may come in contact.

Today, Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. is one of the largest men’s general fraternities in North America with more than 275,000 initiated members, with nearly 200 active subsidiaries (called chapters) at colleges and universities. It was the first fraternity to eliminate pledging in the early 1970s, and remains a leader in the fight against hazing, alcohol abuse, drugs, and other challenges facing today’s college student.┬áLambda Chi Alpha serves as a co-curricular experience to complement higher education by providing young men with opportunities for academic achievement, leadership development, and lifelong friendships.

Words From Our Alumni

  • Over the quarter-century that I’ve been part of the chapter, it has been the most functional organization I have seen in my lifetime. The key is that the strict non-hazing policy attracts the right men. Just as when I joined, Sigma Rho Zeta is an island of sanity and decency in a world where most adults have lost so much of the goodness and decency that is the hallmark of youth.
