COVID-19 Update

Masks will be required in all public spaces and sessions. Upon arrival participants and facilitators will be asked to provide proof of a negative covid test that was completed within 24 hours of arrival. In lieu of a test, they may supply proof of compliance with vaccination protocols. Meaning they are fully vaccinated (two weeks past their last dose) prior to arrival.


Participants must be initiated members of Pi Kappa Phi by May 15, 2022. Preference will be given to applicants going into their sophomore or junior year of college. Additionally, the fraternity may limit the number of participants from a single chapter who attend a session, although there is no restriction on how many members from a single chapter may apply. The admissions committee will base final decisions on the quality of the application submitted, as well as the diversity of chapters represented in a session. The priority deadline is March 7, 2022, to apply.


In addition to large group sessions throughout the program, students also participate in small groups called “huddles.” Huddles are led by two faculty members comprised of one alumnus and one friend of the fraternity. In these groups, participants build connections, cultivate brotherhood, reflect on what’s been discussed, and make meaning of each day’s curriculum. About Ten huddle faculty positions are available for each session of Pi Kapp College for Emerging Leaders.
