Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity

Certified Ritualist Training 2014

Certified Ritualist Program

The Certified Ritualist program is designed to educate and recognize undergraduate and alumni members who desire to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the values and teachings contained in our Ritual of Initiation. All initiated members — students and alumni — are eligible to attend. 

After exploring the history and symbolism of the Ritual of Initiation, participants leave equipped to execute and debrief the Ritual, describe and apply Pi Kappa Phi's values to their daily lives and teach others to articulate the deeper meaning of the fraternity's Ritual of Initiation. In order to be designated as a Certified Ritualist, members must pass a written examination.

Alumni members who have completed the Certified Ritualist program are qualified to serve as a chapter's ritual advisor and can assist chapters with the staging and performance of the Ritual of Initiation. Certified Ritualists can also facilitate a proper debrief of the Ritual for all new initiates. Undergraduate members who are Certified Ritualists work closely with their chapter advisor, ritual advisor, chaplain and warden in a similar manner.
