Investing in leadership programming like the Webb Academy and Noble Man Institute challenges our members to live courageously and nobly lead others. These programs encourage Sig Taus to challenge themselves and their brothers, as well as lead with integrity.

Webb Academy

This longstanding flagship program of Sig Tau is the annual leadership training event for newly elected presidents, vice presidents of membership, and vice presidents of finance. This event is held each January in Kansas City, Missouri. The program began in 1985 and was only for newly elected chapter presidents, but has since been expanded. The travel, lodging, and meal costs for undergraduates to attend are kept to a minimum and offset by donor support.

Noble Man Institute

Noble Man Institute is an exciting retreat-based leadership program for newly initiated brothers of Sigma Tau Gamma with a curriculum based on Kouzes & Posner’s book, Leadership Challenge. In many ways, this is the Fraternity’s national new member welcome program. The Institute centers around our six principles while bringing together alumni and undergraduate members of Sigma Tau Gamma from across our regions to develop leadership skills, expand knowledge of the fraternity, and facilitate team building. Undergraduates participate in large and small group activities, including outdoor ropes course-based activities in four different regional sites.
