The Balanced Man Program

The Balanced Man Program makes SigEp different within the Greek community. The BMP offers a no-pledging, continuous development experience focused on scholarship, leadership, and life skills. Members learn to live their best lives through unique, rewarding programming tailored to fit their needs and prepare them for the journey of life ahead.

By developing a Sound Mind in a Sound Body, SigEp members are given the tools to succeed during school and beyond. The BMP provides a fun, practical way to achieve your goals through a series of self-paced challenges that center on personal growth and development. The BMP’s unique structure allows chapters to develop programming to fit their campus experience and recruit the best men year-round.

The program guides members to build positive habits and key life skills through mentoring and experiential learning. SigEp members are educated in time management, etiquette, physical fitness, career planning, and life skills such as cooking, financial planning, and relationships. Using self-reflection, discussion, evaluation, and personal written goals, young men use the Balanced Man Program to prepare for the journey of life.

The core components of each challenge are: goal-setting and achievement; academic support; personal health and wellness; mentoring— guidance from older members and alumni on doing your best; and service and experiential learning.

Sigma Challenge — Building a Foundation for brotherhood: Adjusting and assimilating into the chapter and the community.
In the Sigma Challenge, members participate in time management workshops, learn to handle commitments, build teams through shared goals and pursuits, practice values-based leadership and live SigEp’s cardinal principles. They also learn about SigEp’s history, its current standing in the Greek community and its future.

Phi Challenge — Understanding the benefits of fraternalism: Building balance, cultivating the values and knowledge that a man needs to excel at college, SigEp, and life.
In the Phi Challenge, members learn best practices in personal and professional etiquette, begin their involvement in other student organizations, begin to develop leadership and professional skills, and learn pertinent personal health and wellness information.

Epsilon Challenge — Brothers as leaders: Exploring the issues a servant leader faces.
In the Epsilon Challenge, members serve as leaders in the chapter and/or on campus and are challenged to move beyond their cultural comfort zone. They participate in a service-learning project to give back to the campus or community and begin to build professional skills that will distance them from their peers.

Brother Mentor Challenge — Developing and utilizing skills as a servant leader, especially as a mentor.
In the Brother Mentor challenge, members gain valuable life skills in financial planning, entertaining and major life decisions. They build contacts outside the chapter through alumni engagement and national programs, mentor younger members, and identify where the SigEp experience will take them next.
