College provides education, PIKE provides an experience. Welcome to the True PIKE Experience.
Development does not stop after initiation.
Since its inception in 2003, PIKE University serves as the combined banner for all the Fraternity’s educational and leadership programs and maintains itself as the premiere leadership development program in the fraternity world. PIKE University events are professionally facilitated events that occur through eight regional Leadership Summits, a Chapter Executives Conference, and The Academy/International Convention. Building on the success of PIKE University, Pi Kappa Alpha now provides the True PIKE Experience, our chapter-based, four-year membership development program.
What is the True PIKE Experience?
The True PIKE Experience is an individualistic, comprehensive member-development program that is branded around the Fraternity’s True Pike values statement. This program incorporates all involvement aspects of Pi Kappa Alpha, including scholastic performance, personal development, leadership, PIKE University, community engagement, campus involvement and participation. Through in-person engagement coupled with a peer-to-peer facilitated educational curriculum, this program complements individual involvement and provides members with a greater appreciation for what it means to be a True Pike, ultimately preparing them for success in life. The TPE operationalizes the commitments of the True Pike that members make to themselves, their brothers, their Fraternity, and their community.
The educational curriculum within the True PIKE Experience is now available on PLAID. A variety of self-paced online modules are accessible to all Pi Kappa Alpha members to be completed throughout their college experience. These courses will not only provide members with knowledge and skill development, additionally upon completion members will be able to receive badging and certification highlighting to others the topics they learned.
