Mission and Values


Our Mission

To promote a community within EMU that inspires leadership development, fosters personal growth, and creates lifelong learning. 

Our Values

- Civic Engagement -

The chapter will engage members in a process that actively addresses issues on both local and national levels. Through these activities, the chapter will instill a lifelong commitment to citizenship in its members. 

- Intellectual Development -

The chapter will develop and maintain a scholastic program that promotes success, growth, and the importance of academics in its members. The chapter will also instill a commitment to life-long learning outside the classroom for its members to increase their awareness in other areas such as arts, culture, and current events.

- Positive Relationships -

The chapter will create a safe and healthy environment which fosters brotherhood and sisterhood within their respective chapters and promotes collaboration throughout the Greek and EMU communities. These relationships will be rooted in the purpose and values of the organization. In addition, the chapter will respect the dignity of all people while embracing the free exchange of ideas and beliefs while educating and promoting healthy lifestyles.

- Integration of Purpose -

The chapter will understand the purpose and values of their organization and educate its members on how these ideals relate to their daily activities. The chapter will foster and promote environments that are consistent with their purpose. Individuals within the chapter will take ownership of their organizational values and be responsible to them.

- Leadership Development -

The chapter will foster an environment that encourages, supports, and promotes leadership in its members. This will include leadership experiences both inside and outside of the organization. Leadership is defined by the following basic assumptions based on the article, Leadership Reconsidered: Engaging Higher Education in Social change:

  • Leadership is concerned with fostering growth.
  • Leadership is inherently value-based.
  • Chapter provides opportunity for all people to be potential leaders.
  • Leadership is a group process.
