Educational Materials

The educational materials provided by the General Fraternity introduce those involved with recruitment to Sigma Nu's Values-Based Recruitment theory and practice. These materials assist both undergraduate and alumni members in understanding the complete recruitment process, from creating a year-round plan to honing individual recruiting skills.

Recruitment Chairman Manual
The Recruitment Chairman's Manual is the theory behind values-based recruitment. Inspired by the recruitment philosophy of Sigma Nu alumnus and NCAA football coach Al Groh, the Recruitment Chairman's Manual reviews topics such as Rush vs. Recruitment, the History of Fraternity Recruitment and the NIC 5-Step Model. It also describes and reviews the concepts and theory that are the foundation for VBR.
The Recruitment Bluebook
The Bluebook is a step-by-step instruction manual on how to create a values-based, year-round recruitment plan. It is the "nuts and bolts" or the "how to" of recruitment. Use the Bluebook as a guide to develop a year-round recruitment plan that your chapter will use. We believe The Recruitment Bluebook will revolutionize the way our chapters recruit.
Bluebook For Alumni
The Bluebook For Alumni is the counterpart to The Recruitment Bluebook. Developed for alumni as a step-by-step guide to getting involved, its topics range from becoming a recruitment advisor or committee member to coordinating a National Recruitment Day event. The Bluebook For Alumni shows our graduated members how to effectively get involved with chapter/colony recruitment efforts. To download the National Recruitment Day appendix item, please click here.
Recruitment Skills Workshop
Sigma Nu's Recruitment Skills Workshop is an interactive session for the whole chapter focusing on individual recruitment skills. For new members ready to start recruiting and upperclassmen brushing up on their skills, it is a great way to get your chapter ready for recruitment every semester. The workshop can be facilitated by the recruitment chairman and his committee, your chapter's leadership consultant or an alumni advisor.

Additional Resources
If there is ever a weakness in a successful recruitment program, it is usually the lack of the fundamental skills to have creative, worthwhile and memorable conversations. A number of resources have been designed to help your chapter improve upon past recruitment skills and effectively implement a successful VBR program.
