Sigma Alpha Epsilon - Alaska Alpha Chapter
The goal of the Foundation is to enhance the undergraduate experience and to foster the academic and leadership potential each of our collegiate members possess. Through every program we are in keeping with our Foundation Mission.
The mission of Sigma Alpha Epsilon is to promote the highest standards of friendship, scholarship and service for our members based upon the ideals set forth by our Founders and as specifically enunciated in our creed.
Values of Sigma Alpha Epsilon are Honor, Loyalty, Friendship, and Fraternity; the values upon which our fraternity was founded. All of these characteristics play an equal part in creating the strong foundation necessary for developing a meaningful and sustainable relationship between the college or university, the undergraduate members, local alumni and our national headquarters.
Honor is representative of a man’s integrity.
Loyalty is representative of a man’s devotion.
Friendship is representative of a man’s understanding.
Fraternity is representative of a man’s need to share common values and strive to better themselves through only the most intimate of relationships.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s national preferred philanthropy is the Children’s Miracle Network because of its great capacity to impact children’s lives and the proximity of numerous hospitals to active chapters. On April 6, 2002, the Fraternity launched its True Gentleman Day of Service, which has grown to involve hundreds of chapters. Sigma Alpha Epsilon is a national partner with National Youth Service Day. The Alaska Alpha Chapter is also heavily involved with the Alaska Special Olympics, the EVA Foundation and many other Community Service Projects such as roadside clean up of our adopted road UAA Drive here on campus.
Creed of Sigma Alpha Epsilon
"The True Gentleman"
The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will and an acute sense of propriety, and whose self-control is equal to all emergencies; who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty, the obscure man of his obscurity, or any man of his inferiority or deformity; who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another; who does not flatter wealth, cringe before power, or boast of his own possessions or achievements; who speaks with frankness but always with sincerity and sympathy; whose deed follows his word; who thinks of the rights and feelings of others, rather than his own; and who appears well in any company, a man with whom honor is sacred and virtue safe.
- John Walter Wayland (Virginia Omicron 1899)
