Values-Based Recruitment

We all understand the concept of values-based recruitment: recruiting men based on the values of our Fraternity. But Sigma Nu's Values-Based Recruitment Program is more than just a concept; it's a package of products, services and resources designed to transform your chapter into a high-performance recruitment machine.

VBR takes a comprehensive approach to recruitment — from the theory behind values-based recruitment and its practical application, to step-by-step instructions for creating a seamless recruitment plan and the tangible resources to back it up. It's the WHY, the WHAT, and the HOW to become expert recruiters.

Just as our founders recognized that recruitment was the lifeblood of our Fraternity — by the end of the 1869 academic year Sigma Nu at VMI had grown from 3 to 51 members — we must continue to recruit the best and brightest young men into our chapters nationwide. And, just as our founders recruited men based on the fundamental values and principles of Sigma Nu, so today we must attract the best men on campus based on those same values and principles.

Recruitment is hard. In today's competitive environment it's becoming increasingly difficult to attract the future leaders of our Fraternity. Here's another truth: great recruiting chapters are best-suited to become great chapters.

This is more than just recruiting with our values. This is building an effective, organized, structured, comprehensive recruitment program for your chapter that is rooted in the core values of Sigma Nu.

This is recruitment at the next level. This is VBR.

Values-Based Recruitment Resources

Recruitment Chairman's Officer Wepbage: This officer resource page curates the many General Fraternity resources pertinent to your position to provide an overview of available tools. It is recommended you take time to review the resources below to familiarize yourself with relevant expectations, guides, and resources. 

Recruitment & Manpower Best Practices Libary: This library includes activities, programs, processes, and practices that result in or lead to excellent performance. Practices were collected from Sigma Nu chapters across North America of every size, institutional type, and region of the country. The best ideas and practices that could and should be replicated by other chapters are found here. The library allows users to sort through ideas, examples, and templates. Best practices are sorted by area of operations (as defined by the Pursuit of Excellence Program) and subcategorized by type (e.g., accountability ideas, events, finances).
