Friendship: We as a fraternity are united by friendship. We can accomplish much more working together than any of us can individually. We choose to treat everyone how we would want to be treated, while always being there for our brothers. 
Justice: .We continuously reaffirm our purpose through the observance of the Fraternity’s governing laws and through adherence to the decisions of our legislative assemblies. Doing the right thing, above anything else, was the sole reason for the birth of the Fraternity. Standing true to their belief in integrity, six of Sigma Chi’s Founders left the Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity because they wanted to stay true to principle.
Learning: Along with promoting scholarship and academic success, the Fraternity also best serves its purpose by developing, implementing, and monitoring programs that foster leadership, build character and promote positive relationship skills, which, in turn, enable our members to become productive and caring participants in their families, colleges and communities.


     Fundamental Purpose: 

The cultivation, maintenance and accomplishment of the ideals of Friendship, Justice and Learning within our membership.


To develop values-based leaders committed to the betterment of character, campus and community.
