Rosenberg UIFI Scholarships


Each year the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) sponsors a five-day leadership institute for fraternity and sorority members. Since its inception in 1990, UIFI has challenged nearly 3,000 fraternity and sorority students representing almost 250 different universities and colleges, and 115 different Greek affiliations to make a difference in the Greek communities.

UIFI is a principle-centered approach to creating change within a Greek community. Lessons learned at UIFI will be beneficial for a lifetime.

UIFI helps participants identify the timeless principles through which they can define themselves individually and organizationally.

UIFI then helps participants recognize how they can act out these principles by honing important life skills in areas such as leadership, group dynamics, service, and organizational change and development.

UIFI also generates a momentum toward positive change in local Greek communities by creating a strong connection among all participants where people feel responsible to each other and to the greater good called "fraternity." Commitment helps UIFI graduates translate their enlightenment into action.

UIFI is an institute, not a conference. As an institute, it offers a unified curriculum to all participants. Each educational component builds on a previous segment and leads into the next. All sessions offer hands-on experiential activities and ample discussion time to address individual concerns. Major sessions are complemented by small group meetings (called chapters) held throughout the session. Chapter meetings are designed to assist each UIFI participant in developing his or her desired leadership skills and goals, gaining new ideas, and creating concrete action plans for his/her return to campus.

At UIFI you will:

  • Experience team-building at its best with your fellow UIFI chapter members.
  • Learn the value of a Greek environment that promotes academic achievement, ritual-based decision making, and a balanced college experience.
  • Be challenged to explore your potential as a leader.
  • Tap your power to motivate and encourage others.
  • Experience the excitement of "Into the Streets," a hands-on service plunge in the local community.
  • Identify what's important to you.
  • Be able to recognize signs of group think that interfere with building community.
  • Better understand the urgency for change and your responsibility to facilitate it.
  • Exchange ideas with other participants and facilitators.
  • Receive a resource kit designed to help you involve others in activities similar to those at UIFI.
  • Leave encouraged, energized, and confident to face the challenges ahead of you.
  • Identify resources which and professionals who will help you achieve your goals and objectives upon returning to campus.
  • Translate Awareness Into Action

Living and Learning together the intimate living atmosphere, personal attention from quality facilitators, educational sessions which are interactive by design, and constant idea sharing among participants are just a few of the reasons why UIFI has been such a special experience for so many students.

Each session will offer 50 - 60 Greek leaders and 15 fraternity and sorority professionals from throughout the United States and Canada a live-in institute experience. A chapter house will become "home" for our time together. Large group programs are complemented by regular small group meetings in "chapters" of 10 - 12 students. From late night conversations to the one-on-one personal discussions, you're making new friends and supporters for life.

Sessions and chapter meetings are led by professionals committed to helping you achieve your desired outcomes. These professionals are staff and volunteers of fraternities and sororities and campus fraternity/sorority professionals. UIFI is interactive, fun, challenging, inspiring, encouraging, and beneficial.
