Brotherhood Unbounded is AKPsi’s program for developing principled business leaders. BU is designed with the following pathways:
- Know Yourself
- Build your Team
- Find your Path
- Practice your Skills
For 2021-22, the BU rollout involves the rollout of a few specific activities and events, including the Birkman survey (Know Yourself), two new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion courses (Know Yourself), the Institute of Business Leadership (IBL) (Build your Team), and the Principled Business Leadership Institute (PBLI) – sessions currently planned for February of 2022.
More information on all BU activities can be found in MyAKPsi under the Events and the MyLearning sections. In addition, new business and career-related content are available through our Business Edge Podcast and our general website Leadership – Alpha Kappa Psi.
Why Brotherhood Unbounded?
“…for our brotherhood, unbounded truly means having or appearing to have no limits. We are in a challenging time right now in the world, in our country, in our academic experiences, and in our brotherhood. But despite all of the physical and emotional constraints, coming together as a community is helping us remember that we are not defined by the limits placed on us….”Brotherhood Unbounded” captures the essence of the types of people that make our fraternity better. We are the challengers. We are the innovators. We are the risk takers. We are the ones who will not let obstacles stand in our way.”
– Alexandra Pirsos, Elon ’18, competition winner for naming Brotherhood Unbounded.
