About Sigma Chi Fraternity
The fundamental purpose of the Sigma Chi Fraternity is to cultivate an appreciation of and commitment to the ideals of friendship, justice and learning within our membership. These ideals have been at the heart of Sigma Chi since its founding by seven men at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, in 1855.
We achieve these ideals through the practice of character qualities embodied in our Ritual, which is a secret document that defines our formal traditions and is the common bond between our members. Although this vision of Sigma Chi is based upon the notion of shared ideals, our founders believed that true brotherhood would thrive best among men of different temperaments, talents and convictions.
Our guiding principles, unchanged for over 150 years, continue to define the essence of Sigma Chi. Sigma Chi is known for building leaders, and our members have a reputation of putting Character-in-Action™ to change their communities.
