The Initiative Academy's main purpose is to inspire and equip the next generation of leaders in Theta Chi. This event is unlike any other event offered by the Fraternity. This isn't an officers' conference, nor is it a chapter operations school. The Initiative Academy is designed for the unique needs and perspectives of our emerging leaders. Men who attend the Initiative Academy will leave changed and prepared for leadership.

Participants will meet dozens of Theta Chi brothers from all corners of the United States and Canada and will be mentored by several skilled and dedicated Theta Chi alumni faculty members. All faculty members have been chosen for their unique knowledge and expertise. Most bring many years of leadership experience in their chosen fields. They will offer real world insight that will prove valuable far beyond one's college years.

Registration Information
Registration is free and includes lodging during the Initiative Academy, eight meals, a t-shirt, and transportation via shuttle from the Indianapolis International airport to the event and back. The last day to register is June 7.
