The Earl A. Webb Academy is an annual program, held in January, designed to bring together undergraduates in the roles of chapter President, Director of Recruitment, Director of Finance and for the first time in 2018 the Director of Community Engagement. Webb Academy provides the time and space to become more effective leaders, develop personal and officer goals and design a framework for chapter success.
The curriculum includes reviewing Standard Chapter Operating Expectations and networking with top university professionals, Fraternity volunteers, and Headquarters Staff. This three-day program of intense leadership training and networking with other undergraduate officers concentrates on personal and chapter leadership.
Undergraduates attending Webb Academy should expect to:
- Understand their leadership roles within the chapter
- Know deadlines related to positions and headquarters support
- Reinforce and recall effective recruitment practices
- Recognize the role emotional intelligence plays when interacting with others
- Articulate and identify hazing practices and behaviors
When it started in 1985, Sigma Tau Gamma was the first national fraternity to hold a President’s conference. It has evolved over the years and now includes three officers with plans to bring together the executive board from every chapter and associate chapter.
The program is named in honor of Earl A. Webb for his commitment to our Fraternity and his desire to see each and every officer properly prepared to take on their respective roles. Webb, a dedicated lifelong member of Sigma Tau Gamma, gave more than 60 years of leadership and service to the Fraternity.
