At Lambda Chi Alpha, creating a lifetime of True Brotherhood is what we do! It is the outcome we identify as essential in determining our success or failure as an organization. For us, the process of creating a lifetime of True Brotherhood is the result of positive development in our individual members, as well as within our chapters and colonies. It is about transforming our members and shaping who they are, what they know, and what they can do. Our approach to Brotherhood and leadership development is influenced by the United States Military Academy’s (West Point) leadership development shorthand of BE-KNOW-DO.

The BE component is about who our members are as a person, as a leader, and as a brother; in short, their Character. The KNOW component represents their skills, technical and interpersonal, that describe their Competence as a leader. The DO component is Action, the real test of a leader’s effectiveness. The actions or decisions our members make are results of their characters and competences.

Often initiated brothers complete the experience of the initiation ritual with a high degree of passion, loyalty and excitement. Unfortunately too often this passion, idealism and excitement gives way to a more mundane and routinized experience of fraternity life. The initiated brother’s journey is designed to maintain and nourish this passion and idealism and to utilize it in the service of supporting healthy maturation, realizing the development of these positive capacities for psychological health and life adaptation, and achieving the specific goals and consolidation of values which are central to our ritual and our teachings.
