Distinguished Brother/Leader Lecture Series

The Office of Alumni Affairs is proud to present the second season of the Distinguished Brother/Leader Lecture Series (sm). The 9-month series features members who have distinguished themselves in their careers and/or as members of the fraternity. The Series (sm) runs from September - May and will have a culminating event in the summer of each year. The purpose of The Series (sm) is to expose members (and occasionally others) to the subject matter experts and thought leaders that abound in Iota.

We seek to encourage:
cultivate the professional development of our members
support the building of lifelong connections and networks

Additional anticipated outcomes include:
create programming that adds value to the alumni member experience
establish a national speakers bureau of subject matter experts
