Your Daughter and Sigma Kappa

Risk Management

Sigma Kappa expects that all members will follow Sigma Kappa policy, college/university policy, and all local, state, and federal laws. The Sorority expects her members will make informed, reasonable, and responsible choices regarding herself, her sisters, her campus, and the national organization's safety. Sigma Kappa has a number of policies designed to reduce the potential for harm to our members and to address situations when issues have occurred. Sigma Kappa requires regular education for the members on these policies. Collegiate Chapters and members are expected to self-govern behavior when it does not align with our values. Our risk management policies help to enforce the use of a Standards Council process to address situations.

 

Academic Requirements

Each collegiate chapter sets minimum scholastic standards for its members to maintain. The standard of performance is set by the National Policy Handbook of Sigma Kappa. This reflects Sigma Kappa’s belief that individual excellence develops chapter excellence. All chapters are expected to provide leadership in academics as well as in other areas of campus life. The women of Sigma Kappa must maintain a 2.5 GPA overall to remain in good standing. 

Our Vice President of Academic Excellence dedicates herself to assisting our members with their academic goals. She encourages academic growth and achievement in order to uphold our Sigma Kappa value of scholarship.

 

Sigma Kappa Support

Sigma Kappa volunteers are truly the heart of our organization. Our volunteer leader’s commitment to Sigma Kappa helps to ensure the longevity of the sorority and helps to create lifelong members of Sigma Kappa. In addition to our national headquarters staff, Sigma Kappa collegiate chapters are supported by our volunteers who serve as mentors and friends. Each collegiate chapter is also paired with an alumnae chapter or ‘sister chapter’ because we know that collegiate/alumnae relations are an important part of member development.

Sigma Kappa also provides numerous scholarship opportunities at a local and national level. There are many ways to receive assistance and recognition for academics and involvement. We take pride in our women and want to support them in any way we can.

 

Financial responsibilities 

Your child, should she be a member of our sorority, will receive a break down of dues for the Gamma Theta chapter on Bid Day. Our Vice President of Finance works closely to manage the budget and member dues. For a simple break down of what dues may look like, you may visit our national headquarters website. https://www.sigmakappa.org/collegiate-life/financial-responsibilities/

 

Time commitment

Sorority life does have its responsibilities. Sigma Kappa understands that school comes first, so we ensure that support is provided as much as possible. With this in mind, it is imperative for members to come to events and stay up to date with what is going on in the chapter and on campus! We hold weekly chapter meetings on Monday nights where we discuss new business and announce what is going on in the coming week. We also host many study sessions throughout the semesters to promote a strong learning environment with our sisters. We want our women to feel that the time they spend here is valuable, so it is our utmost priority to present beneficial information that will help your child grow into the leader she is meant to be.
